Inspired by their father who purchased his first Maynard Dixon artwork in 1964, the Paltenghi brothers have spent over four decades building a collection of rarely-seen Dixon works including many notable drawings. Join collectors Bruce C. Paltenghi and Dr. Richard Paltenghi for a lunchtime talk highlighting some of their favorite collecting stories and artworks by Maynard Dixon.

The 'Art Bite' series presents lunchtime dialogues offering perspectives and interpretations of art and exhibits on display in the galleries of the Nevada Museum of Art. Art Bites take place on Friday afternoons from 12 noon to 12:45 pm, in the Prim Theater at the Nevada Museum of Art. Admission is free to members, $10 for non-members. Purchase tickets at the admission desk or online. For more information, contact the Nevada Museum of Art, 775-329-3333.
