Meeting and greeting in front of Daniel Habegger's "Clearance" (completed 2014) during the opening of "Recent Acquisitions" at the Marjorie Barrick Museum, June 19, 2015. The exhibition of acquired works, many gifted, were selected to testify on the range of contemporary art practices in the region.
Justin Favela's "Estradas" (2010) at the entrance of the opening night micro-buffet. The collection is growing so quickly it is hoped the next gift is storage, quipped Jeffrey Koep, dean of UNLV's College of Fine Arts, during opening night welcome.
Joining the space in the Barrick are works from The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection that were gifted to UNLV.
