Long red banners hang on the nets of a public tennis court. White text written in Chinese characters is printed along the length of each banner. Tall green trees stand behind the courts.

UNLV Annual Art Walk 2022

Friday, November 4th, 5 - 9 p.m.
UNLV Main Campus
 

Celebrate the arts with us at the 2022 UNLV Art Walk. Visit the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art galleries and take part in an all-ages zine workshop when we stay open late on Friday, November 4th. Enjoy all of our current exhibitions: Making Room, Meanwhile, a few feet away from you, Notes For Tomorrow, Two Cultures, One Family: Building Family, Finding Home, and "Untitled" (L.A.). The Department of Theater will be performing villainous excerpts from Richard III on our garden patio, the Department of Dance will teach you some ace ballet moves, the School of Music will play strings, horns, and Schubert, Glen Nowak will show you Tuvan throat-singing, and there will be refreshments. 

 

As you walk around the rest of the campus you’ll be invited to create your own metal sculpture with Aluminati, watch an excerpt from the Nevada Conservatory Theatre’s dynamic production of Anton Chekov’s The Cherry Orchard, listen to opera, experience virtual reality, go behind the scenes with film sound technology, record yourself inside the Ghostbusters’ Ectomobile, view new art exhibitions in Grant Hall Gallery (Solstice), the Donna Beam Fine Art gallery (City of Second Chances), the Artemus W. Ham Concert Hall Lobby (work by Rita Deanin Abbey) and more. You might also see one of the artworks from Notes for Tomorrow—a radical hengfu banner by Luke Luokun Cheng—taking a walk around the grounds.

The 2022 UNLV Art Walk takes place in various locations around the UNLVcampus, including the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art, Pida Plaza, the Alta Ham Fine Arts Building, and the Performing Arts Center. Parking on campus during the Art Walk is free. Please contact the Museum at barrick.museum@unlv.edu or (702) 895 3381 if you require accommodations for the zine workshop.
