FINE ARTS GALLERY & ARTSPACE GALLERY
The main goal of the Art Galleries at the College of Southern Nevada is educational. National and regional exhibitions that represent a broad range of viewpoints are actively sought and promoted. The galleries’ educational mission is realized through the sponsorship of a variety of exhibitions that provide the student population as well as the community at large with opportunities to interact with art and artists. Activities such as lectures and workshops provide forums that allow the audience to gain a greater understanding of the art they view and the motivations behind it. Exhibits are designed to offer exposure to various individual artistic methodologies, materials, media, genre, and techniques. The opportunity to view artworks in a gallery setting creates a forum, which allows the student and public to gain a greater understanding of the art they view and the motivations behind it.

Horn Theatre Auditorium near the half circle drive at the North Las Vegas campus main entrance, 3200 East Cheyenne Avenue, North Las Vegas, Nevada 89030.
