The Las Vegas Art Museum has partnered with UNLV and the Marjorie Barrick Museum. The LVAM collection of nearly
200 objects was recently moved out of long-term storage and into the newly renovated Marjorie Barrick Museum.
From its beginnings in the 1950s to the most recent acquisition in 2008, selections from the LVAM collection will be offered for view regularly in the Museum exhibition hall. Works in the collection include artists from the Southern Nevada region as well as artists with a broader national reputation. One of the strengths of the collection is the significant representation of artists who have graduated from UNLV, many of whom have built significant careers in the art world. The first offering in the Barrick is, Into the Light: The Las Vegas Art Museum Collection Emerges.
