DESCRIPTION

The Nevada Museum of Art is a museum of ideas.  The Museum cultivates meaningful art and social experiences, builds upon its founding collections and values, and fosters new knowledge in the visual arts by encouraging interdisciplinary investigation.  The Museum serves as a cultural and educational resource for everyone.

The Museum has a permanent collection of over 2,000 artworks, organized into five focus areas – The Altered Landscape, Contemporary Collection, Sierra Nevada and Great Basin Collection, Historical Collection and the E.L. Wiegand Collection– all of which deal with interactions between humans and their natural, built and virtual environments.  This thematic, rather than historical or stylistic focus on the environment mirrors the community's growing interest in the protection of the land.
