Description

“Celebrate Nevada” Reception & Silent Auction

August 28th 2021 at 7:00 p.m.

Silent Auction

Lost City Museum is dedicated to preserving Moapa Valley’s past through its artifact storage and conservation. However, it is running out of room! In recent years, storage areas have become more crowded. In order to plan for a future where the museum can continue to accept Moapa Valley’s cultural resources, this August proceeds from the silent auction will be the initial fund raising venture for an on-site storage facility.

Unique and valuable items will be auctioned. Initial offerings include original artwork by Jana Ward and Janet Trobough, Native American made jewelry, Acoma pottery, and a signed photograph by Virginia Lucas. Experiences will be auctioned such as a curator or Director-led tour at the Marjorie Barrick Fine Art Museum, hands-on workshop for six with our Curator of Archaeology, a behind the scenes tour at Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas, admission tickets from the Mob Museum and Las Vegas Natural History Museum. Other sponsors include TravelNevada, Nevada Humanities, and Nevada Arts Council. As more donations come forward, they will be announced on our website.
