For August, the theme of hands/ON! is "Little Burners: Collective Art & Performance." It goes along with the upcoming Burning Man art festival, north of Reno in the Black Rock Desert. The August schedule for hands/ON! is in my article about events and activities at the NMA.

Free admission to hands/ON! on 2nd Saturdays includes all current exhibits at the Nevada Museum of Art as well. Be sure to check out the exhibits and other events at the only accredited art museum in Nevada.

Regular admission is $10 general, $8 for students and seniors, $1 for children 6 to 12, and free for members and children 5 and under. NMA hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday. The Nevada Museum of Art is located at 160 W. Liberty Street in downtown Reno.

Hands On sounds like a wonderful place to take children and free makes it even more enticing for parents on a budget!
