A project to expand research and educational facilities in a new campus that would enhance accessibility to the Museum’s art and archival collections, which hold the work of American artists, Australian aboriginal painters, landscape photographers, eco-artists, and which total approximately 3,000 fine art objects, 7,500 library books, and 1,000,000 archival items.

Building upon an existing global focus on art and environment, the Nevada Museum of Art is working with architect Rem Koolhaas’s Office of Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) to expand its research and education facilities to better serve our communities and to lead our region into a future driven by creative innovation. The Museum seeks to establish a new campus known as the Atlas, a radically accessible education and research hub where art catalyzes interdisciplinary inquiry and curiosity about our changing world. The Atlas will use the Museum’s unique art, archives, and library collections to enable visitors to experience those collections rhizomatically, i.e., driven by their own interests, impulses, and ideas. Boundaries between galleries, learning laboratories, storage areas, social spaces, and the outdoors will be porous. This challenge grant will support Phase Two of the project’s conception and design, the goal of which is a unified programmatic and architectural design.
