Street Art in Reno Nevada

Updated: May 27, 2020

Today I took a virtual street art walking tour around Midtown, Reno, Nevada using Google Street View as the vehicle. The following are some of the murals and pieces I discovered during my wanderings. I have never been to Reno and I just had a look at a map of the United States and closed my eyes and pointed to a city. Of course, I would much prefer to be walking around on foot.

A mural depicting Bacchus emerging out of a sea of wine. Bacchus is the God of the grape harvest, winemaking and wine, fertility, ritual, madness, religious ecstasy and festivity. There are a number of people floating in the sea of wine one is a young boy holding a tire. Another is a man that appears to be drowning and toasting a glass of red wine at the same time. "Bacchus hath drowned more men than Neptune. " a quote by Dr Thomas Fuller.

Purple Cat Smiling
