Opening Day! New Exhibitions! The Award Winning Documentary HERB & DOROTHY! Activities for All!  

Join us on July 12th from 9am - 5pm

The UNLV Marjorie Barrick will reopen with updated lighting and a new exhibition featuring works from The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection. This collection includes the work by such notables as Stephen Antonakos, Neil Jenney, Lynda Benglis, Lucio Pozzi, Edda Renouf, Bettina Werner and Richard Tuttle.

The award-winning documentary, HERB & DOROTHY, by filmmaker Megumi Sasaki, will be playing in the Barrick to accompany the exhibition. The film tells the extraordinary story of the Vogels.

Also on display:

The Kent Bicentennial Portfolio: Spirit of Independence contains lithographs and screen prints by well known artists including: Alexander Calder, Alex Katz, Ed Ruscha, Robert Indiana, Colleen Browning, and Marisol Escobar. The works were created in response to the question,”What does independence mean to me?”

Pre-Columbian Sacrifice: The Burden of the Elite: This student-produced exhibition explores the central themes of ritual sacrifice, feasting, blood letting, and the ancient ballgame using artifacts from the Dr. Michael C. and Mannetta Braunstein Collection of Pre-Columbian Art.
