Currently showing at the Barrick Museum...
UNLV's Marjorie Barrick Museum is currently hosting a benefit show and auction to assist with their financial survival in the face of recent budget cuts. The artworks have been donated by well-known Las Vegas artists and can be purchased via a silent auction at the closing reception on November 9th.
Also showing is 'Let Them Eat Cake', a group exhibition on a popular theme, which opened with cupcakes provided by the Retro Bakery, Mad Hatter Cupcakes and Caked Las Vegas. Comic book lovers will enjoy 'Seduction of the Innocent: A visual exploration of comic book censorship through the decades' which is linked to the Vegas Valley Comic Book Festival, and the permanent exhibits of Mesoamerican ceramics and Mexican dance masks shouldn't be missed.
