“The halls of Nevada State College are a testament to the region’s influence on aesthetics represented by artists selected for contributing to local cultural identity. It is a presence that inspires students and faculty, staff and guests, that southern Nevada is a gateway for culture waiting to escape the desert.” -- Ed Fuentes, BA of Visual Media, Class of 2015
