The museum presents approximately five exhibitions a year, ranging from single-artist retrospectives to comprehensive presentations that explore specific topics.

Up-and-coming local artists have a new outlet to showcase their work: The Marjorie Barrick Museum Community Gallery at UNLV. Mixed media artwork from students, alumni and local artists will populate the museum’s latest effort to highlight the growing local art scene.
The Community Gallery is part of an overall initiative to make the museum a more dynamic and participatory space. This first exhibition in the gallery is currently on display through August 20th and includes work by:
Karla Von Bohn, Karin Miller, Cory Mcmahon, Jennifer Main, Devin Margaret Duitsman, Thomas Wong, Josue Fred, Alicia Bridgewater, Ron and Marsha Feller, Maimarie Mercereau, Heather Roberts, Michael Mills, Lincoln Maynard, Erin Brown, Jamie Thomson, Melanie Bruck Coffee, Daniel Oshima, Abraham Abebe, Tuli Mac, Kim Johnson-Hagan, Lolita Develay, Hillary Price, Ve zun 10.
Gallery exhibits will rotate every six to eight weeks and offer a mix of visual art, including photography, painting, drawing, sculpture and more. UNLV students oversee all aspects of the gallery, contact artists, choose artwork, set up exhibits and plan and host receptions.
“The gallery gives new artists a chance to show their work to the public and offers UNLV students – both artists and curators – an opportunity to engage in the process of setting up an exhibit,” said Aurore Giguet, curator of the Marjorie Barrick Museum. “We want to grow a collaborative artistic community on campus by offering as many opportunities as possible for students, staff and community members to get involved.”
