The Las Vegas Art Museum Finds a New Home

The Las Vegas Art Museum closed in 2009 after the economy decimated the museum's budget. Now after three years the museum's new permanent home will be at UNLV. The school and museum announced the partnership in January and will host a "teaser" exhibit in the coming months. The closing of the museum in 2009 shocked many in the local arts community and was a stark example of how the economic crisis impacted cultural institutions in Las Vegas. We talk with Patrick Duffy, president of the LVAM board about the future of the museum.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
