SOLD OUT – OVERFLOW: Members’ Exclusive Talk: Author and Filmmaker Rick Beyer on The Ghost Army

OVERFLOW SEATING:

Seating in the Theater is full for the talk. Overflow seating is in Founders’ Room or in the Nightingale Sky Room for a live simulcast of the talk.

In the summer of 1944, a handpicked group of GIs landed in France to conduct a secret mission. Armed with rubber tanks, fake artillery, and more than a few tricks up their sleeves, they put on a traveling road show of deception on the battlefields of Europe, with the German Army as their audience. From Normandy to the Rhine, the 1,100 men, known as the Ghost Army, conjured up phony convoys, phantom divisions, and make-believe headquarters to fool the enemy about the strength and location of American units. Unpack the secrets of the Ghost Army with author and filmmaker Rick Beyer followed by a Swinging Social with the Retro Radio Dolls.

* Doors open at 5:30 pm with cash bar

Talk registration includes access to the Swinging Social with the Retro Radio Dolls immediately following. Or register separately to attend just the Swinging Social.

Behind the Scenes with a Curator

Have you ever wondered why the Nevada Museum of Art collects the artworks you see in our galleries? Or, how we decide which works “fit” and enhance our thematic permanent collections?

In addition to organizing exhibitions, curators build institutional collections and take many factors into consideration before making recommendations to the Board’s Collections Committee.

Please join JoAnne Northrup, Curatorial Director and Curator of Contemporary Art, for an exclusive presentation of a forthcoming exhibition of recent acquisitions, Shifting Horizons, opening in late March. Learn how these important works reflect the Museum’s ongoing commitment to integrating a range of artistic voices in the permanent collections.

Program for Collector’s Circle, Sierra Circle, Sierra Circle Stakeholders and Director’s Circle Members. 

Program hosted on Zoom.

For assistance, contact Ela Zawadzka at 775-398-7232
