BARRICK ON THE AIR: From KNPR article and audio, UNLV's Barrick Museum Turns 50 Looking To Engage Community: "Getting on the community’s radar screen starts this week with a public anniversary celebration Friday evening at the museum. The museum's new name — the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art — will be officially unveiled at the event."
PRINT: In Las Vegas Weekly's article, Interim Director Alisha Kerlin Leads the Barrick Museum Through Its 50th Anniversary, Kerlin is asked "What’s the purpose behind the latest name change?' She replied. "We have Mesoamerican art objects in the Braunstein gallery, and we house one of the most famous and inspiring donations of contemporary art in recent American history—the Nevada portion of the Dorothy and Herbert Vogel 50x50 Collection. [Given] the fact that we have those two massive collections and that we’re growing our own collection of contemporary artists with ties to Southern Nevada, it’s natural to have 'of Art' by the name."
