Parks: Past/Present Perspectives Exhibition
(May 10th, 10 am - 4 pm)

To celebrate the opening of the Parks Rephotography Project, TMPF and the City of Reno will be holding a special showing of 18 historical photographs recreated to highlight some of the changes that have taken place in our parks. At 10 am, we will be recreating the following historic photograph of the dedication of the California Building.
Everyone is invited to join us and be a part of Reno history. We are especially looking for veterans, boy scouts and girl scout groups, so please help us spread the word and have them contact us. The exhibition is free and open to the public. Become a Parks Site Steward and help us document change in the community.
