Nevada Humanities.

Explore. Experience. Engage.

Nevada Humanities provides opportunities for Nevadans to explore, experience, engage, and understand the world around them. We create programs and support projects that define the Nevada experience, feature local culture and heritage, and facilitate the investigation of ideas that matter to Nevadans and their communities.

ZAP! 7 The Artists Who Took Over Maryland Parkway
August 6 -- September 24, 2015

Nevada Humanities presents ZAP! 7 The Artists Who Took Over Maryland Parkway, August 6 through September 24, at the Nevada Humanities Program Gallery, located at 1017 S. First Street, #190 in downtown Las Vegas. The exhibition features artwork by the artists that were commissioned by Clark County Parks and Recreation to create public art on utility boxes along Maryland Parkway, from Desert Inn Road to Russell Road. The exhibition reflects the style and direction each ZAP! 7 artist is pursuing in their own body of work, outside of the parkway project.
