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
