Bilingual Exhibition Tour / Visita Bilingüe a Una Exposición

Join the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art and the UNLV Department of World Languages and Cultures for a bilingual tour of "Connective Tissue" by neuroscientist-turned-artist Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya. The exhibition features large scale murals and interactive installations enriched by the artist's belief that power and impact are created through connections and networks. Visitors will gain firsthand knowledge of consecutive interpreting and sight translation and how they positively influence the experience of the diverse public who will attend the exhibition. The event is free. All are welcome.

BILINGUAL EXHIBITION TOUR / VISITA BILINGÜE A UNA EXPOSICIÓN is in collaboration with Elena Gandia Garcia’s SPAN 317 students. “Interpreting students learn the basic techniques, as well as extensive theory and practice on ethics, professional skills, and the needs of the Las Vegas community,” says Elena Gandia Garcia, associate professor-in-residence. “This event sets the scene for fostering our visitors’ positive attitude towards both the cultural diversity and the highest expression of art.”

Additionally, the Barrick Museum of Art is partnering with Vanesa Cañete-Jurado’s Introduction to Translation (English-Spanish) students. “Inclusive initiatives like this bring us together by highlighting how art and language can broaden our understanding of the world, our communities, and ourselves,” says Vanesa Cañete-Jurado, PhD, assistant professor, Spanish.

Introduction to Translation (English-Spanish) is a class where students become acquainted with translation and how it can help us establish meaningful connections with others. After experiencing the exhibit, students will select texts within the installation that are connected to their own realities and translate them into Spanish. These translations will be made available to all museum visitors.

"The Barrick Museum of Art is a community gathering place where Las Vegans can come together to learn and experience art," says Alisha Kerlin, executive director. “This event is a continuation of our efforts to foster discussion, curiosity, and a sense of belonging.”


Visitors may park in metered, staff and student spots free of charge all day Saturday. The Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art is easily accessed from the west side of the UNLV campus. Drive east on East Harmon Ave until the road enters the campus and terminates in a parking lot. The Museum will be on your right, next to a desert landscape garden.
