An Art Space For The People

The Generator is an inclusive art space, maker space and community space in greater Reno/Sparks for anyone who wants to make things and be part of a creative community.

We dream. We convene. We create. We make. We’re inspired by the magic and inspiration we see in all its enormity at Burning Man each summer, and we want to keep it alive all year. We combine forces and share resources in the name of creative growth and community involvement for all. Never been to Burning Man? No worries. Burner status is not required.

We have industrial equipment and tools, a powerful network of creative minds, 3 phase power, and 35,000 square feet of workspace. We share our collective know-how and we hope to learn from yours. We’re here to encourage everyone to unlock their maker potential.

Want to learn more? Stop by for a tour and chat with our Front Desk Greeter.

The best time to come by is:

Thursday 2pm – 6pm

Friday 2pm – 8pm

Saturday 12pm – 5pm

Sunday New Member Orientation at 11am & 1pm.

The Generator is home to a wide array of Artists, Builders and Inventors working in many disciplines. We believe that a broad range of makers in the same space inspires everyone to push the boundaries of their creative efforts, reduces creative blocks and promotes new ways to approach old problems. Our motto is: “Help good artists become great, help decent artists become good and introduce everyone to the joy of creativity.”
