We Will Survive. Friday, September 23, 7 - 9 pm.
In our first ever benefit show, the UNLV Barrick Museum draws together work by Las Vegas artists. The exhibition will run September 24 - November 9 and consists entirely of works by artists donated to the Museum. The Museum will host a “sneak peek” reception on Friday, September 23rd, 7:00 - 9:00pm. On November 9th, a closing reception and silent auction will be held, with bidding on all the work included in the exhibition. Food and refreshments will be provided by Wild Truffles catering, and photographer Joel Spencer will host an art photobooth to raise money for the Museum. Proceeds from art sales and auction items will directly support the Museum.

Seduction of the Innocent. Friday, September 30, 6 - 9 pm
Seduction of the Innocent. September 30 - October 29. Geeks unite! The Barrick has teamed up with Yelp and the Las Vegas Valley Comic Book Festival to put together “Seduction of the Innocent”, an exploration of censorship in comic books.The exhibition will take a journey through censorship with comic books, reproduced covers and original art from sequential art titles that have been spurned by libraries, communities and, yes, the once-mighty Comics Code Authority.
The opening reception on Friday, September 30th, 6 – 9 pm will feature tours of the exhibition; Cosmic Comics, Maximum Comics, Alternate Reality, and the Comic Denfense Fund will be on hand; caricature artists will be capturing your good side for a small fee; a couple of DJs will be playing 8-bit game electronica; and there will be complimentary eats from local businesses and a menu of hosted adult-beverages. The night will also be the closing celebration for Yelp.com’s “Yelp Geeks Out”, a month of geek culture across the Valley. RSVP is required.
