Visual Arts Permanent Collection

Joan Arrizabalaga, The Only Game in Town (2000)

While the development of a permanent collection is not the primary focus of the Churchill Arts Council’s visual arts programming, it is an important adjunct to our efforts to present, preserve and document visual arts relevant to our region. As such, we collect and display works that compliment, enhance, contextualize, and expand the content of CAC’s ongoing exhibition program. The Permanent Collection and exhibition program strive to feature the works of regionally and nationally recognized contemporary artists; showcase the efforts of local collectors, individuals and institutions who have made a significant commitment to the collection of such works; and present works of art and exhibitions that provide context for and examine relevant issues in both historic and contemporary visual arts germane to the region.

Support for the documentation of the Visual Arts Permanent Collection has been provided by the Nevada Commission on Tourism.
