STORY SUMMARY:
RENO, Nev. (July 16, 2007) —Each July, the month-long Artown festival amplifies Reno’s vibrant arts and culture scene with hundreds of performing and visual arts events. Just one of the Artown events this year was Ice Hot Cars where spectators could find the “world’s hairiest limo” among the featured art on wheels. More than 40 hot rods, street rods, custom cars, art cars, and lowriders with air brush art filled the National Automobile Museum’s parking lot in downtown Reno.

At the festival’s midpoint, there is still plenty of music, dance, theater, opera, children’s workshops, movies in the park, cowboy poetry, historical walks, visual arts and more to enjoy. Log on to visitrenotahoe.com or renoisartown.com to learn more.
