Sneak A Peak

“Behind the Scenes” Volunteer Art Break Returns

Volunteers, bring a friend and join us Thursday, September 8th for the second “behind the scenes” tour and lecture on the workings of our Museum.

Participants will begin in the Theater at 5 PM for a presentation by Museum curator Ann Wolfe on the curatorial process. Ann will cover how exhibitions and art works are selected, the process and curatorial duties of each exhibit and upcoming exhibitions.

Afterwards, Bob Anderson will take volunteers on a tour of the dock and clean prep stations, then into the Feature Gallery to view the gallery changes of an installation in process.

For those of you who missed the original tour due to our fickle Reno weather or you’re hearing about it for the first time, this is your chance to get an in-depth view and understanding of the workings behind a real museum. If you would like to attend this event please contact Rosalind Bedell at rosalind.bedell@nevadaart.org
