A true artist is not one who is inspired, but one who inspires others.
― Salvador Dali


Reno Open Studios (ROS) is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to the visual arts and established to promote arts education and foster a greater understanding of the creative process between local artists and the general public. ROS grew out of Artouring, an organization that started in 2006 and had been named one of the top art events by the Reno Gazette Journal.

Arts education is a central value of ROS. Every year we give a scholarship to a deserving UNR art student. We fund this scholarship through the sale of raffle tickets at each open studio. All proceeds from donations and raffle tickets go to the ROS scholarship Fund.
