Opening Reception: June 19 (6-8 p.m.)
This exhibition brings together recently acquired works to the Barrick Museum and Las Vegas Art Museum collections. Many of the artists included in Recent Acquisitions have ties to Las Vegas, including Brian Porray, Rita Deanin Abbey, Angela Kallus, Robert Beckman, Yek, Sush Machida, Thomas Burke, Justin Favela, and Eric Beehn. As a cross section of the diverse practices pursued by contemporary artists, this exhibition reaffirms the Barrick’s commitment to collecting art of the present. The vast majority of the works will be on display for the first time since entering the museum’s collections.
