We are in the process of planning an Occupy Art Show to feature the work of a few local artists. If you are interested in submitting entries please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Occupy Art Show” in the subject line. Please include a short description of what you would like to submit (drawings, paintings, sculpture, prints, all of the above, etc.) and your contact information. All submissions will be voted on by committee members and gallery owner. The show will take place from Nov. 13-27 at 720 Tahoe St. off St. Lawrence with a specific event Nov. 18 or 19. All entries should somehow incorporate the themes, messages, and/or values of the larger Occupy movement. This show is to help raise awareness for Occupy Reno in the larger Reno community.
We are in the process of organizing an Occupy Reno community band. We are looking for people who have their own instruments/equipment and previous musical experience who would be interested in performing at the occupation and a possible benefit concert. If you are interested in joining please send an email to email@example.com with “Occupy Reno Band” in the subject line. Please include a short description of your talent (do you sing or what instrument you play?) Also include your level of experience, availability, and contact info. If you have equipment or an instrument you can loan us, please let us know.
In addition, we are in the process of finding artists who would like to find a building and get permission to paint a mural on it. If you would like to help in finding a location or have ideas on the actual mural please email firstname.lastname@example.org with “MURAL” in the subject line.
Lastly, we really need more flyers/posters. These can be general ones which communicate our message and frustrations such as the examples on occupy together.org or specific ones to events. In particular, we need a poster for Saturday’s march and General Assembly which we are hoping to have by Thursday at the latest although tonight would be better. We also need a poster to announce the occupation start date. As that date is TBD at this time, it would have to be something we could easily put the date into as soon as we know. Again, please email email@example.com with “FLYER” in the subject line.
Thanks for all your help and creativity!
