A Brief History of the Nevada Museum of Art

The Nevada Museum of Art is the only accredited art museum in Nevada. It was founded in 1931 as the Nevada Art Gallery by Dr. James E. Church, a professor at the University of Nevada, Reno. A new facility was provided by the E.L. Wiegand Foundation in 1988 and the name became the Nevada Museum of Art/E.L. Wiegand Gallery. The four level building we enjoy today opened in 2003. It houses the Nevada Museum of Art, the Donald W. Reynolds Center for the Visual Arts, and the E.L. Wiegand Gallery. For more, refer to "History" on the Museum's website.
