Nevada Humanities' Reno Office is Moving to a New Home
Nevada Humanities' Reno office has relocated from its location on North Sierra Street to the Second Floor Suite of the KNPB Building, at 1670-200 North Virginia Street in Reno. Nevada Humanities is Nevada's independent, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities and produces and supports cultural programs statewide.
The move follows discussions and planning with the University of Nevada, Reno which hosts Nevada Humanities on its Reno campus. The move makes room for a new University of Nevada, Reno residence hall being built to keep up with the increasing demand for on-campus student housing. Other University services between 11th Street and Galen Street are being relocated as well. Construction on the new residence hall is anticipated to begin in 2014.
"After 21 years in our little brick bungalow on North Sierra Street, we're excited to launch Nevada Humanities’ next wave of growth and to join KNPB in their home,” commented Nevada Humanities' executive director Christina Barr. “We're also grateful to the University for its continued support and hosting of our mission and activities."
Kurt Mishe, president and CEO of KNPB Public Television, welcomes Nevada Humanities to their new location and said, "We're delighted to have Nevada Humanities join our community and look forward to more opportunities for collaboration and service to our state."
Nevada Humanities will complete its move by the end of January. For more information visit nevadahumanities.org or call 800-382-5023.
