If you love artwork, you have to make a trip to Nevada. While Reno, Nevada, is typically known as a not-so-interesting Vegas, it’s also a hub for art and culture in the state, including street artists and Burning Man creators. The Generator in Sparks, Nevada, just outside Reno, is where you’ll find many artists hard at work creating some of the festival’s best pieces.

The Generator is a vibrant and innovative community space where individuals can gather to work on projects, learn new skills, and share ideas. This space provides a wide range of tools and equipment for woodworking, metalworking, electronics, and other forms of fabrication, as well as resources for digital fabrication. This space is home to a diverse and talented community of artists, many of whom have a solid connection to the Burning Man festival. These artists use the resources and tools provided by The Generator to create large-scale, interactive, and visually striking art pieces that are featured on the playa at Burning Man each year.

One of the core values of The Generator is to provide a collaborative and supportive environment for its members. The space is designed to facilitate teamwork and the exchange of ideas, which can create new and exciting projects. The area is open to makers of all skill levels, from beginners to experts, and the community is always eager to welcome new members.

The Generator also offers tours, various classes, and workshops on a wide range of topics. Whether you’re interested in learning how to use a particular tool or want to learn a new skill, the space has something to offer. The classes are taught by experienced makers passionate about sharing their knowledge and skills with others.

Burning Man bleeds into the culture in Reno. To get a real feel for the city, a trip to The Generator is a must-do.
