RENO– A Nevada university will quickly put a sought after, high-priced Stradivarius violin on the auction block in order to spend for their brand-new arts structure.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports that the Nevada System of College Board of Regents offered approval last week for UNR to sell the famous brand name instrument, which is anticipated to net countless dollars.

The school’s music department got it as gift from a donor, which enabled graduate students to utilize it as part of their research studies.

The school said it will now utilize the cash to spend for its $35 million University Arts Center Building.

The new center is anticipated open by September 2018.

It’s believed that there are just about 650 Stradivarius violins out there.
