Marking Room

The Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art reopens its newly renovated West Gallery with a curation highlighting an array of recent acquisitions and celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Museum joining the UNLV College of Fine Arts in 2012. Making Room maps out where the Barrick has been in the past and where it wants to go in the future.

Making Room features artwork collected over the past decade, conceptual and minimalist works from Nevada’s portion of the Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection: Fifty Works for Fifty States, and a selection of paintings and drawings from Into the Light, the first exhibition that took place after the Barrick transitioned decisively from a natural history institution to a museum of contemporary art. Previously unseen acquisitions include prints by twentieth-century artists such as Pablo Picasso and Marc Chagall and more recent work by Ayanah Moor, Yumi Janairo Roth, and James Stanford.
