The highly acclaimed Nevada Touring Initiative (NTI) connects audiences with the visual arts at the local level. Program staff crisscrosses the state installing professionally curated exhibits in communities of all sizes—from Beatty (pop. 1,000+) to the Las Vegas metropolitan area. Connecting audiences with the arts at the local level, NTI exhibitions feature an array of subjects and art forms, ranging from traditional Washoe basketry to landscape painting and contemporary sculpture.
In FY2016, more than 27,000 people visited museums, libraries and other public facilities in 10 Nevada counties to view NTI exhibits, including Words + Images: Broadsides from the Black Rock Press and A Brushwork Roundup: Western Paintings and Drawings by Craig Sheppard.
