The Lost City Museum presents “Nevada Tableaux” an exhibit of mixed media sculpture by Denise Sins, a multi-faceted artist whose sculptures reflect on what she calls the austere mystery of desert, life, mortality and the beauty of objects discovered in nature.MLN-Museumjun4-15

A lifelong artist, she received a master’s degree in fine arts from The San Francisco Art Institute and has taught art at many prestigious organizations.

“Part of what art is about is searching and experimenting. Sometimes we don’t know what is going to be in a work of art until it tells you,” Sins said. “If you try to force it and don’t let it speak to you, you don’t get good results. Art is very personal and my art reflects my view of the world and dreams.”

The Lost City Museum actively engages people in understanding and celebrating Nevada’s natural and cultural heritage. One of seven managed by the Nevada Division of Museums and History, an agency of the Nevada Department of Tourism and Cultural Affairs, it is open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission is $5, children and members enter free. The museum is at 721 South Moapa Valley Blvd. in Overton. Take Interstate 15 to exit 93. Access is also available from Lake Mead National Recreation Area or the Valley of Fire State Park.
