The Nevada Museum of Art, Las Vegas hasn’t been built and already it’s running out of space.
It was expected that the museum, part of a statewide expansion of the Reno-based Nevada Museum of Art, would be built on land owned by the City of Las Vegas just south of The Smith Center for the Performing Arts.
But, organizers have decided that the museum would require more room to grow, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
"It wouldn’t be world-class museum able to adequately serve a population of two million people on a 1.2-acre site," said Heather Harmon, the Las Vegas museum’s deputy director.
Organizers have been talking to the city about other sites and are also considering the nearby Clark County Government Center. That possibility will be discussed at Tuesday’s Clark County Commission meeting.
