about Nevada Museum of Art:
Started in 1931 by a small group of plein-air landscape painters, the museum places a special focus on examining how humans interact with natural, built, and virtual environments.
With art collections ranging from Native American baskets and nineteenth century landscape paintings, to Altered Landscape photography and a burgeoning contemporary art collection, the Museum recognizes that what sets it apart from other institutions is this unique focus area. Beginning in 2009, the Museum decided to dedicate its curatorial, scholarly, and research endeavors to the study of art and environments.
