The Nevada Museum of Art permanent collection is divided into four thematic focus areas: Contemporary Art, Altered Landscape Photography, Art of the Greater West, and the Work Ethic Collection. The Center for Art + Environment Archive Collections and Library serve scholars and researchers seeking information related to creative interactions between people and their natural, built, and virtual environments.
These thematic, rather than historical or stylistic, specializations are a natural outgrowth of the institution’s collecting practices over the years. The art collections consist of over 2,000 objects from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The Center for Art + Environment houses nearly 50 archives comprised of 12,000 items in its Archive Collections and over 5,000 books in its Library.
