Reno-Tahoe International Airport is working its way up the “cool airport” list. The airport has slot machines, free Wi-Fi, and complimentary “productivity centers” (thank-you Reno-Gazette Journal) complete with electrical outlets and work tables. The airport also offers free local and toll-free calls from phones in the three Productivity Centers (the Main Lobby by Brew Brothers; Gate C1 and in the Gate B2 area) and on several cylinders in the Baggage Claim area.
And through September 14, 2009, the airport is hosting an exhibit featuring artwork from the Burning Man art event and celebration that takes place in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada each summer.
FROM PLAYA TO RUNWAY: THE ART OF BURNING MAN – includes photos from 2000-2008, a wall devoted to the festival’s non-profit outreach groups, and artifacts from the event.
Look for it in the 2nd floor Concourse Gallery, between Concourse B and C, until September 14, 2009.

Travelers seem to be enjoying this exhibit; in the Burning Blog comment section, an airport employee wrote that she’d overheard a traveler leaving a voice message for a friend, “that went something like this: ‘Hey, I’m in Reno and I am looking at a Burning Man exhibit in the airport. I’m sure that I’ll find you in one of these photos…yep, there you are. You look like you’re having a great time. Call me.”
