The Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art is located in the heart of the UNLV campus and is the university’s center for art, ideas, and learning. We run a rotating schedule of exhibitions sourced from our own collections, in tandem with works never before seen in Las Vegas. Our auditorium provides us with a place to show experimental art when it is not hosting one of the campus’ regular University Forum lectures and Visiting Artist talks, all of which are free to the public. Conversational tours and engaging hands-on art activities are available for visitors of all ages to bridge the gap between observer and creator.

Summer Hours (May-August)
