On Sept. 14 from 7 - 9 p.m., the UNLV Barrick Museum will throw a party to kick off the new school year and celebrate its new status as a museum focused primarily on fine arts and cultural history.
The Rebel Art Party will take place in the museum's historic exhibition hall - one of the oldest buildings on the UNLV campus - amidst the museum's extensive permanent collection and the photography exhibition "Great Basin Exteriors."
Food and refreshments will be served, a food truck will be parked at the museum's entrance and Vegas-based DJ Scream will perform on the museum's garden patio. Visitors can create their own spin-art painting at a spin-art booth or stop by the airbrush tattoo booth. Local artists will also be painting and sculpting at the museum.
"The Rebel Art Party gives visitors a chance to learn more about the Barrick and its programs and events, and learn how students and community members can become more involved at the museum," said Aurore Giguet, program director for the Barrick Museum.
