Unexpected Quality, Interesting Exhibitions

We were in Reno for the weekend and stopped by this museum. We found out that every second Saturday was free admission. It's definitely worth checking out.

Since it is the state level museum of art, I expected to see a large permanent western art collection, plus contemporary art from the west. Instead, there were a few interesting canvases and some interesting visiting exhibits. Small scale but nice.

I love this museum. The design is interesting as is the setting in an old near downtown neighborhood. The collection is small but well-curated. And the staff is super nice and friendly

We finally joined this last time we visited. We usually go to visit as we have free time during the day. They have lots of other things besides art. The last time we were there they had an exhibit of Lincoln documents ie emansipation proclimation Nevada statehood. Check their website for what is current.

We visited the museum to see the animal taxidermy exhibit. It was creative, amusing and puzzling. The butterflies were beautiful, and the peacock dress fantastic. Very entertaining with an odd twist.

I've visited the Nevada Museum of Art several times, and this last visit I made just continues to impress me. First rate galleries over multiple floors, and wonderful visiting exhibits. In July I was thrilled with the Doris Duke Shangri La exhibit. In a previous visit there was an exhibit of Frida Kahlo's photography that was superb. There is also... More
