In honor of its 50th year anniversary, the Barrick Museum of Art at UNLV has undergone a handful of upgrades, from tweaking its name to creating a new logo. And with its recent Bus to Barrick fundraiser, the museum is preparing generations for another half century (or more) of art education. The campaign is part of the museum’s effort to bring in more than 1,000 students in grades 1-12 via field trips during the 2017-2018 school year. “The arts are a fundamental cornerstone of any healthy culture. Everyone deserves access to the arts,” reads the project statement. As of press time the museum has raised $4,940 of its $6,000 goal. Those funds will go toward renting buses and art supplies for students, something schools often struggle to provide on their own. To donate, visit unlv.edu/barrickmuseum.
