ABOUT #bus2barrick

At the UNLV Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art we believe that a widespread awareness of visual art can vitally nourish the wellbeing and cohesion of our community. The arts are a fundamental cornerstone of any healthy culture. Everyone deserves access to the arts.

To celebrate our 50th year of service to Las Vegas, we plan to increase the number of free field trips we offer to CCSD students of all ages and academic disciplines. As the only art museum in the city, such visits may be the first time that many young Las Vegans encounter the visual arts outside the classroom. For some, it may also be their first exposure to a university campus. Through cooperative discussion and guided activities we hope to help students on their path to lifelong learning. But we need your help!

The biggest barrier to field trips is the cost of transportation and materials. The funds you donate will go towards renting buses and buying art supplies for tours. Our goal is to host 2 tours per month during the 2017-2018 academic year, bringing in more than 1000 students between 1st and 12th grade. Any donations beyond this goal will be used to provide the students with advanced fine art workshops led by local artists and alumni.

The more gifts we receive, the more opportunities we have to make a difference in the lives of young Nevadans. Thank you!
