Beginning in the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art, and winding its way through campus grounds and gardens, the Art Walk will introduce you to all seven areas of the Fine Arts at UNLV — Dance, Film, Theatre, Architecture, Music, Art, and Entertainment Engineering and Design. Engage with interactive film sets, be awed by the power of a ninety-person choir, savor a performance of Shakespeare’s sonnets, and much more. Champagne, wine, and hors d’oeuvres will be served. It is free and open to the public.

Schedule of Events

5 p.m. - 9 p.m.

The Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art
Tamar Ettun's Jubilation Inflation: Jubilation Inflation unifies different areas of the Tamar Ettun's practice in a multifaceted examination of trauma, healing, and radical empathy. This solo exhibition consists of several parts. At the center, there is an intimate compartment containing an installation of interactive audio work. It is surrounded by mixed media sculptures, a selection of experimental videos, and four inflatable room-sized environments where visitors will be enveloped by a climate of vivid color.

Soundscapes: Exploring Anthropophony: Soundscapes explores the sounds we use — both deliberately and unconsciously — to connect ourselves to the people around us. From Mesoamerican clay whistles to work by contemporary artists such as Charles Clough, this group exhibition roams through history to ask us how people have created sound in the past and how we experience sound now. Curated by Chelsea Adams,  UNLV English Doctoral Student.

Donna Beam Fine Art Gallery
Curated through the Donna Beam Gallery, ¡Americanx! assembles a lively group of artists whose artwork runs the gamut of inspirational sources and cultural commentary with varied media, from painters to sculptors, photographers, illustrators, cartoonists, and installation.  “¡Americanx!” has UNLV introducing the depth and diversity of contemporary works produced by artists of Latino/a/x heritage who call Las Vegas home. Performance by Yasmina Chavez and Javier Sanchez: 7:45 pm - 8:00 pm.
