The Center for Art + Environment

The Center for Art + Environment is an internationally recognized research center that supports the practice, study, and awareness of creative interactions between people and their natural, built, and virtual environments.

Housed at the Nevada Museum of Art, the Center is home to a focused research library with archive collections from over 1,000 artists and organizations working on all seven continents.

The Center has commissioned several high profile artworks including, Helen and Newton Harrison’s climate change project, Sierra Nevada: An Adaptation (2011); Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone’s Las Vegas public art installation, Seven Magic Mountains (2016); and Trevor Paglen’s non-functional satellite sculpture, Orbital Reflector (2018).
