Focusing primarily on progressive, emerging artists … the galleries at Sierra Nevada College provide a rich visual and intellectual environment not reliant on sales for support. This allows us to exhibit a wide array of artists whose work ranges from traditional practices to new media, installation, site-specific, and performance art.

This project is funded, in part, by a grant from the Nevada Arts Council, a division of the Nevada Department of Cultural Affairs, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
