RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The Reno Star was dedicated to the city today at a ceremony held at the corner of S. McCarran Boulevard and S. Virginia Street.
The City of Reno Arts and Culture Commission collaborated with the RSCVA and NDOT to create the sculpture. The Reno Star is funded in part by the City of Reno's public art fund.
Christine Fey from the City of Reno Resource Development and Cultural Affairs Department says the star cost $104,000. Half of that money came from hotel room taxes, while the other half came from private donations.
