2017 Silver State Scavenger Hunt
May – June 2017
Where else in the world can you traverse a forest comprised entirely of dilapidated and half-buried cars, photograph a plaster ghost riding a bicycle next to a giant metal penguin and miner, admire eloquent murals depicting Nevada history, and watch 30-foot flames shoot from the antennae of a giant metal praying mantis? Nevada, of course. And the 2017 Nevada Magazine Silver State Scavenger Hunt is the perfect way to do it.
We’re celebrating outdoor art of every shape and size this year, sending scavenger hunt participants on a wild ride to see some of the state’s most beautiful and bizarre installations.
Once again, we’ve split the state into two zones—Northern and Southern—and chose 14 notable art pieces in each. Simply pick a zone, visit 10 of the 14 locations in that zone, snap a photo of yourself holding the JULY/AUGUST 2017issue of Nevada Magazine at each location, and email us all 10 photos.
We’re teaming up with Land Rover Las Vegas and Jaguar Land Rover Reno again, who will be providing this year’s prizes. In addition to those provided by Land Rover, participants have a chance to win other cool prizes including Nevada State Museum passes, Nevada Museum of Art passes, and restaurant gift certificates.
The official list of destinations will be published in the JULY/AUGUST 2017 issue of Nevada Magazine. To get your copy first, subscribe to Nevada Magazine. You can also look for the JULY/AUGUST 2017 issue on newsstands. The hunt begins July 1 at 8 a.m. and ends Monday, July 31 at 5 p.m. Click here for complete rules and information on how to receive a complimentary copy of Nevada Magazine.
