Silver City, Nevada, an historic community within one of the largest federally designated historic landmarks in the United States, is the site for one of the official Signature events marking the statewide celebration of Nevada’s Sesquicentennial.
The afternoon show at the Silver City School House Community Center, including music and appetizers, will feature the fine art, photography, jewelry, ceramics, basketry, and writing of more than a dozen Silver City residents. In addition to paintings, lithographs, photographs, and pen and ink drawings, the exhibit also includes remarkable pieces by local artisans creating with gemstones, silver, stained glass, metal, clay, and wood.

This FREE event is sponsored by the Silver City Arts group and the Silver City Volunteer Library, with additional support through Healthy Communities Coalition of Lyon and Storey. The Silver City exhibit is a “Signature Nevada 150 Event” to help celebrate the 150th anniversary of Nevada’s admission to the Union.
During the 19th century, Silver City was known as a rough and tumble mining town of the Old West. But today it is a vibrant, active community filled with artists, writers, archaeologists, actors, musicians, teachers, artisans, and entrepreneurs who take great pride in preserving their community and the National Historic Landmark it is located within.
