“This exhibition brings together an important representation of Southern Nevada’s literary and artistic talent. We are privileged to work with the creative community in presenting opportunities to explore ideas that are relevant to Nevada and our place in the global community.” says Christina Barr, Executive Director of Nevada Humanities.

An artist reception and poetry reading was held on Thursday, October 5, at the Nevada Humanities Program Gallery.  And on October 21, from Noon to 3:00 p.m., the public was cordially invited to a hands-on journal and sketchbook project during the Las Vegas Book Festival taking place at the Nevada Humanities booth at the Historic Fifth Street School, 401 South Fourth Street, Las Vegas, Nevada. The Nevada Humanities Program Gallery, the artist reception, and the Las Vegas Book Festival are open to the public and free of charge.
