“Unsettled,” the Nevada Museum of Art’s most recent exhibition, forces attention away from traditional art spaces, like New York, and brings an emphasis to works created in the West. Our Reporter Stephanie Serrano checked out the exhibit and has this story.

At a recent talk at the Nevada Museum of Art, a theater full of community members welcomes JoAnne Northrup, the curator of the exhibition.

The Nevada Museum of Art is now hosting bilingual gallery tours as part of its ongoing Latin art initiative. To learn more, our contributor Krysta Scripter, with Noticiero Movil, took the first tour.

Tony Tinoco led the tour for about ten  guests. He is the community programming and outreach manager at the museum.

"The goal is, of course, having more people and reflecting that diversity from the city into our galleries and with our visitors."

Juan Acuna, a bilingual UNR student, was one of the first participants.

A new exhibit at the Nevada Museum of Art is merging art with Chinese history. Reno Public Radio’s Noah Glick reports.

In the 18th and 19th centuries, twelve bronze animal heads adorned the emperor’s private garden. These sculptures, however were commissioned by a Manchurian emperor and designed by westerners. They were later lost during the Opium Wars, but the Chinese government began recovering some in the 1980s.

Nevada Museum of Art

The Nevada Museum of Art has not one--but two--horse exhibitions on display right now. The first is called, well, The Horse and it's a traveling show that shares the history of horses, which were actually pretty different 50 million years ago.

"Some of them were the size of small dogs all the way up to the size of present day horses," says JoAnne Northrup with the museum. "There was a huge range of forms, too. Some of them looked a little bit more like zebras. It's just crazy."
