Las Vegas has something for every type of vacationer: fine dining, over-the-top nightclubs, relaxing spas, and … the most fascinatingly weird, offbeat museums you’ll find in the region.

Find the nine best museums in Las Vegas below.

Welcome to Andrew Schoultz’s world.

Paint This Desert

He painted eyes and patterns on bright yellow bursts with broad red strokes, playing with the space like a skateboarder doing tricks on a rail. Schoultz adapted his style to other skate parks, and now Winchester has his signature look, a simpler read of his work. A graphic art version of his complex paintings, murals, and installations. A skateboarder himself, the Los Angeles-based artist works with the structure of skate parks designed to simulate random infiltration in public space, which brings street art back to a supportive subculture.

While many skateparks are just graffiti-scrawled concrete slabs and rusted rails, the Clark County Winchester Cultural Center’s is a surreal wonderland. That’s thanks to Los Angeles-based artist Andrew Schoultz, who recently decked out the park’s ramps, pyramids and other obstacles in his signature illustrative style. He invited community members to learn and contribute to the work on April 17. Photographer Mikayla Whitmore was there to document the day. Check out her photos below.

With Krystal Ramirez’s ginormous Bible-paper banner “I Want to See” at one end of the gallery and Almond Zigmund’s monumental plywood cantilever sculpture “Interruptions Repeated” at the other, Plural makes a big statement about “plurality.” Over half of the 44 artists showing in UNLV’s Barrick Museum of Art are women; many are artists-of-color and/or queer. Through rubber and bone powder, Alaskan blueberry residue and fleece—along with traditional media—Plural advocates for greater diversity in exhibition fare.

There may not be a harder working artist than Andrew Schoultz. Every time I turn around, he is doing something bolder, bigger, more complex, whether it be through his paintings, sculptures, installations, murals or public art projects. My colleagues and I have worked with Andrew on a bunch of projects over the years, from 3D murals in Austin to a massive skatepark in Miami, and there is such attention to detail and expansive process that has made Andrew one of the most diverse artists working in contemporary art.

Barrick Museum gives orphaned Zine Library a new home for trove of DIY delights. After languishing for close to a year-and-a-half in a closet following the closure of The Beat Coffeehouse & Records, the Las Vegas Zine Library has finally found a new home in the UNLV Marjorie Barrick Museum.

In the slow evenings of his valet shifts in 2003, Las Vegas Zine Library co-founder Jeffrey Grindley spent night after night cutting and pasting blocks of text and images together. He’d been a collector of zines for a few years, but this was his first time creating his own from scratch.

Don those 3D glasses, step behind the curtain, and immerse yourself in Moritz Fehr’s Colosseum, an 11-minute stereoscopic video and sound installation featuring the grotesque gullet of an open-pit mine near Las Vegas. While the soundtrack hums, throbs and crackles, the viewer gradually descends down a spiraling gash to the toxic dregs puddling at the bottom. Colosseum, named after the actual mine, has a latent horror-movie feel. The sound of electromagnetic fields emitted by the artist’s computer points to the insatiable demand for electronic goods: every time a digital signal is sent or received, it’s dependent on metallic ore grievously extracted from the earth.
