“A lot of museums start with an entire collection, or with a hundred million dollars,” Katie O’Neill, board member of the future Art Museum at Symphony Park, said during a Weekly interview last fall. “We’re not starting with any of that. We’re actually doing it in a very backwards, challenging way.” One element of that unusual fundraising effort will be revealed at Tilting the Basin, the Nevada Museum of Art group show that makes its Las Vegas debut on March 17: a limited-edition fine art print portfolio featuring works by David Ryan, Wendy Kveck, Justin Favela and others. It’s a pricey must-have at $10,000 ($5,000 of which is tax-deductible), but it’ll help to get our “backwards”-moving art museum facing forward. If you’d like an advance peek, contact Michele C. Quinn of MCQ Fine Art at 702-366-9339.
