In connection with the Las Vegas Book Festival, Nevada Humanities presents the exhibition Nevada Crossroads, from October 5 through November 22, 2017, at the Nevada Humanities Program Gallery, at 1017 S. First Street, #190, in Las Vegas. Nevada Crossroads is an invitational exhibition of Nevada poets and artists sharing their work and reflections inspired by the intersections between the past, present, and future. The exhibition includes a wide range of mediums, techniques, and styles. Nevada Crossroads is part of the Illustrated Word Exhibition Series, a special program of the Las Vegas Book Festival (formerly known as the Vegas Valley Book Festival). “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.

This exhibition is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities, and with a grant from the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. 

The Nevada Humanities Program Gallery is located at 1017 S. First Street, #190, Las Vegas, in the Art Square Garden Courtyard downtown in the Las Vegas Arts District.
