The arts for ALL ages, ALL abilities

Mission

"This is art heaven!", expressed a 7 year old boy entering one of Arts for All Nevada's free and open-to-the-public family arts festivals. The arts are important for all ages and all abilities. In addition to programming for ALL, AFAN provides many programs for children and adults with special needs, who do not normally have access to quality arts activities. Arts for All Nevada is also responsible for the thoughtful preservation and year-round use of the Lake Mansion as a cultural and historic facility. With quality arts programming throughout northern Nevada, Arts for All Nevada is the "go to" arts organization for all ages and abilities while operating and maintaining the historic Lake Mansion, "Reno's First Address" to see, hear, and touch Reno's past.
