INOVA luxury apartments at the Summit, the new apartment homes in South Reno geared toward creativity and a spirit of collaboration, launches a community campaign to celebrate local artists called The Art of Innovation.

Presented by Bob Klein of Klein Financial Corporation, Chip Bowlby of Reno Land, and DivcoWest, the Joint Venture developers of INOVA, The Art of Innovation community campaign is an expression of their commitment to build upon Reno’s identity as a leader in art and innovation.

“Inova, named for its commitment to innovation defines the next generation of Reno living, integrating innovation and art, with luxury and convenience to elevate residents to live life inspired,” Bowlby said. “This philosophy is woven in the property’s fabric, and we are bringing light to it in the form of a competition. The Art of Innovation competition gives artists a chance to connect and create work during a time when our community is looking to be inspired.”

The art competition will include a purse total of $10,000, with first, second and third place winners across three different categories chosen, as well as a Best in Show. Categories include photography, painting and sculpture. The top 50 entries will be included in a book, “The Art of Innovation” with the artists’ information and the cost of each piece shown.

Artists are invited to present existing work as well as original works of art yet to be produced. The deadline for the last submission will be August 30, 2020 and a $10 entry fee will be collected per entry. In addition, The Sierra Arts Foundation, a nonprofit art organization working with integrating art in schools, will work with local schools as they try to spark creativity with their students from home. INOVA will be awarding $3,500 for this unique student contest.

This campaign invites local Reno artists, as well as others from across the nation, to create a visual expression that demonstrates what innovation means to them. Contest judges include Burning Man artist, Andrew Johnstone; Executive Director of Artech and Project Manager for Playa Art at Burning Man, Maria Partridge; and former Manager of Arts and Culture for the City of Reno, Christine Fey.


A jury of art experts will judge the submissions, resulting in: Best of Show $1500
