El grupo de powerhouse Jelly Bread dará un concierto sobre un camión de plataforma para conmemorar esta donación monumental de Robert and Dorothy Keyser Foundation.

Renown Health Foundation announced today that the LOVE sculpture, a one-ton, welded aluminum artwork with letters 10-feet tall and eight-feet wide, has found a permanent home at Renown Regional Medical Center’s main entrance thanks to a donation from the Robert and Dorothy Keyser Foundation. To celebrate, Renown has partnered with Carson City’s Brewery Arts Center to bring music to the people of 89502with a flat bed concert by the nationally-touring band and Jelly Bread. The concert will be tonight from 5-8 p.m. and the truck will stop at various locations near the LOVE sculpture, playing feel-good, urban sounds of funk and rock. See the official concert route here and attached.   

“Since April and the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the LOVE sculpture has been a powerful source of hope, inspiration and determination for our community,” said Blake Smith, chair of the Keyser Foundation. “Ahora, no podemos imaginar la entrada del hospital sin ella. Nos alegramos de que esta increíble obra de arte siga brillando con fuerza mientras difunde calidez y consuelo a todos los que cuidan de los que están en nuestros hospitales, a los pacientes y familiares, y a los que pasan por allí”.

Blake Smith estará hoy en la escultura LOVE de 11 a.m. a 12 p. m. para hablar sobre la donación de Keyser Foundation. Un portavoz de Renown también estará disponible para hablar sobre las festividades del concierto de esta noche, que se realizará sobe la plataforma de un camión. Members of the media are invited to the LOVE sculpture tonight at 5 p.m. to cover the concert.   

The LOVE structure was originally slated to be on display at Renown from April 16-July 16 as part of a partnership with local non-profit, Artown. However, because of the generosity of the Keyser Foundation, the sculpture will remain in its current location, clearly visible to employees, physicians, patients, families and vehicular and pedestrian traffic along the Mill and Ryland Street corridors.   

Dr. Tony Slonim, president and CEO of Renown says, “Purchasing the LOVE sculpture to stay on our Regional Medical Center campus was an incredible act of love demonstrated by our former Renown Board Chair, Blake Smith and the Keyser Foundation— a love for our community, a love for those fighting for their health and a love for those fighting to keep our community safe. This piece of art has already inspired so many and comforted those in need during such a notable time in our nation’s history. I encourage everyone to experience this wonderful gift to our community.”  

To celebrate the sculpture’s new home, Jelly Bread will play an upbeat musical set on a traveling flatbread truck, sharing the love with nearby neighborhoods and parks—beginning and ending at the LOVE sculpture. 

“We are extremely grateful to Blake Smith and the Keyser Foundation for bestowing a gift our entire community can enjoy,” said Renown Health Foundation’s chief development officer, Greg Walaitis.
“Dado que el concepto de amor y música es armonioso, no podemos imaginar una mejor manera de celebrar este regalo que con un concierto sobre la plataforma de un camión para toda la comunidad, a cargo de una banda que destila positividad y, por supuesto, AMOR”.

Debuting at Burning Man in 2019, the LOVE sculpture was created by artist Laura Kimpton and fabricated by Jeff Schomberg. Over the years, the duo has collaborated to create 18 letter-based sculptures—including the popular BELIEVE and HOME, which are located in Reno and OINK and MOM pieces, which have been featured around the world. 

Renown believes that healthcare and the arts work hand-in-hand to help heal the mind, body and soul. Displays of visual art and musical performances can be observed at Renown locations throughout the region, year-round.
