A sculpture that was featured at Burning Man last year has a new temporary home in downtown Reno.

Artist Jeff Schomberg created the BELIEVE sculpture along with Laura Kempton for the Black Rock Desert - and it's now on display in City Plaza across from Reno City Hall. Since returning to Reno it's been on 4th Street, and was recently moved to a more prominent spot downtown.

"This'll be here through about July 16th and then I have it committed to other events, but hopefully it'll find a home here in Reno over the next year."

The sculpture is made entirely of steel and took about six months to make.
   
The City collaborated with Schomberg to install the sculpture in coordination with the filming of the American Idol Audition Bus Tour event that will be held in Reno on July 11 (set up) and July 12 (filming). The sculpture is one of a series of words that have been featured at Burning Man for the past five years, joining MOM, LOVE, OINK and EGO.

“BELIEVE creates an inspirational community gathering space and photo opportunity, which will highlight downtown Reno’s river corridor and our partnership with local artists and Burning Man," says Christine Fey, Resource Development and Cultural Affairs Manager for the City of Reno.
