KNPB brings viewers the exciting stories of our region, its artists and the power of their work in the series ARTEFFECTS. Join our host Beth Macmillan from Reno’s Artown Festival each week for an episode that features KNPB produced segments along with additional segments submitted by partner stations nationwide in conjunction with the public television Major Market Group.
