About Marjorie Barrick Museum:
For a transformative experience in art, head to a museum which itself has undergone a major transformation — The Marjorie Barrick Museum on the University of Nevada, Las Vegas campus.
More on Marjorie Barrick Museum:
Once a natural history museum, the facility currently houses groundbreaking exhibits of contemporary art as well as a rotating display of Pre-Columbian pieces from its own extensive collection.
Founded in 1967, the Marjorie Barrick Museum is part of the university’s College of Fine Arts and is housed one of the oldest buildings on the UNLV campus. It was actually the original gym and basketball court for the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels. While this is no longer a place for shooting hoops, the museum still uses the original wooden floor of the court.
To reach the museum’s entrance, guests stroll through UNLV’s Xeriscape Garden, a charming collection of drought-tolerant plants from around the globe.
Once inside the museum lobby, return guests will notice some changes. The aquariums full of small reptiles and snakes that once lined the walls have been replaced by art installations and an ArtBar with a wide variety of hands-on activities. Materials are supplied by the museum and also by members of the public who wish to help foster creativity and exploration. Anything created can be taken home or exhibited in the lobby.
