Nevada Art & Culture

What can we say? Nevada landscapes inspire. Our wide-open, big-picture canvases have a way of pressing your reset button, ushering in a sense of newfound freedom, and encouraging creators to create. And with the way that range of light kisses mountain peaks and valley basins, and ignites dry lakebeds with an unmistakable golden-hour glow, we can’t say we blame ‘em. With everything from world renowned fine-art galleries and oddball open-air installations, to Las Vegas stage shows and eccentric local theater, Nevada brims with art and culture in every city, town, and even natural space.

 

Embrace the many roots of Nevada culture with American Indian, buckaroo and Basque craftsmanship at Nevada art galleries, showrooms, and museums. Wander among street murals and free public art installations that made their debut in Black Rock City. Browse world-renowned Las Vegas art galleries. Take in performance art shows at major art centers or historic Wild West opera houses. Get weird with wild Nevada land art rising from the desert floor. Whatever you’re after, you’ll find larger-than-life Nevada art felt around just about every corner. Let us be your guide.

Modeled after Ugo Rondinone’s “Seven Magic Mountains,” Ramiro and I decided to make our version of the colorful stacked boulders with tires in honor of all the llanteras and mecánicos in East and North Las Vegas. Today I installed #SevenMagicTires on 1000 N Nellis right in front of the East Side’s iconic Sunrise Mountain. If you missed them at UNLV stop by now to check it out and if you’re lucky @antojitos_guayabitos will be there serving up some bomb mariscos! Photos by @mikaylawhitmore!

It’s been six months since we saw Baba. And it could very well be another six before we can visit again. Stay safe out there, little grandma. We hope the wild horses, pronghorns, ravens and mice all keep you company. Enjoy all of those sprawling desert sunrises. We’ll be there as soon as we can. 🖤 #babayaga #babayagashouse #babayagashut #slavicfolklore #nevadaart #dfmi #flyranch #blackrockdesert #burningmanart #largescaleart #witch #baba

What do you think about this glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly, located in the lobby of the Bellagio Hotel in Vegas?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Created in 1998, the beautiful artwork consists of 2,000 hand blown glass blossoms, all together weighing about 40,000 lbs.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The delicate and colorful glass is supported by a 10,000 lb steel armature, and is one of the largest pieces he's ever created. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This popular work of art also cost an estimated 10 million USD at the time it was installed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It reminds me of a ton of colorful jellyfish on the ceiling.😄

The Nevada Museum of Art will celebrate its 90th anniversary next year. During this time of quarantine, our CEO David B. Walker has reflected on the Museum's institutional history and imagined life on the other side of this historic crisis. ✨✨✨
