The Arts at UNLV


From world-class artists to notable speakers, UNLV hosts a wide variety of cultural, educational, and academic activities that are open to the public.


Barrick Museum & Baepler Xeric Garden

The Barrick Museum is the center for art on campus where everyone can enjoy incredible works of art from past and present cultures. The 9,000 square-foot Baepler Xeric Garden, designed as an extension of the museum, exhibits plants from across the world and demonstrates how drought-tolerant plants and an efficient irrigation system combine to save water and create an attractive landscape.
