Episode #16 of the Nevada Magazine radio show features an interview with Rachel Milon, director of communications and marketing at the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno. The historic museum celebrated its 80th anniversary in 2011.
Milon talks about the many exhibits and events at NMA, including the new "A Real Van Gogh?" exhibit centered on the 1888 painting known as Study by Candlelight. Although it was acquired in 1948 from a reputable art dealer and deemed genuine by a prominent Van Gogh expert at the time, debate about the painting’s authenticity has ignited an art world controversy.
Milon also discusses the Voces y Visiones exhibit — highlights from the Collection of El Museo del Barrio in New York — and how listeners can get free passes (while supplies last) to the Nevada Museum of Art.
