Nevada Museum of Art
D.I.C.E. ‘13 is a multi-disciplinary design conference in northern Nevada demonstrating that great design empowers individuals, inspires the masses, and enriches entire communities.
Downtownmakeover.com. Midtown. Reno Collective. Nevada Museum of Art. The Discovery Museum. Artown.
These are some of the movements and organizations that have recently worked towards revitalizing the city of Reno. Great strides have been made, however our community is growing and new ideas to keep the momentum going are needed.
Concurrent to this year’s DICE conference, the museum will be exhibiting the work of architect, William L. Pereira. The exhibit frames Pereira’s practice within the histories of architectural modernism in southern California in the mid-twentieth century. Because Pereira’s career parallels the arc of modern architecture and its focus on iconic form, the evolution and trajectory of his work sheds light on the closing window of the modern movement. Pereira’s work exemplifiies the ideas of building for the future.
In his spirit, DICE urges to explore the future of Reno. By forward thinking, like Pereira, and creating an environment that is timeless, becoming the model of a successful urban development.
DICE challenges you to develop one big idea that would help propel Reno into becoming a great walk-able, vibrant, downtown community. Is it a bike share system? A public art exchange? Temporary storefronts?
DICE deals with design and the future. How does great design improve our environments for future generations and make our city more viable?
