For almost its entire 90-year history, the Nevada Museum of Art has provided significant arts education programming for the public, school-aged youth, teachers, and artists in Northern Nevada. Providing rich cultural programming for the community and region has been a central focus of the Museum’s educational mission, and the Museum seeks to further this important foundation of work.

As the only nationally accredited museum in the state, the Museum features exhibitions by national and international artists as well as a permanent collection divided into four thematic focus areas: the Robert S. and Dorothy J. Keyser Art of the Greater West Collection, the Carol Franc Buck Altered Landscape Photography Collection, the Contemporary Art Collection, and the E.L. Weigand Work Ethic in American Art Collection. These thematic, rather than historical or stylistic specializations, are a natural outgrowth of the institution’s collection practices over the years.

Following the success of the first Art + Environment Conference presented in 2009, the Museum launched the Center for Art + Environment (CA+E). The Center’s Archive Collections and Library serve scholars and researchers seeking information related to creative interactions between people and their natural, built, and virtual environment.

Opening early 2025, the Education and Research Center will increase access to the Museum’s extensive art, archive and library collections while doubling capacity to serve students, educators in professional development and scholars undertaking academic research.
