Vivian Zavataro is the curator and director of the Lilley Museum of Art at UNR. She knows that a lot of people find museums irrelevant, unwelcoming, or unnecessary. She also knows why.
“The problem is that a lot of people don’t see themselves being represented in museums,” she said. In episode 13 of the Double Scoop Podcast, she talked about how the Lilley is working to fix that.
We also talked about how the current exhibition, En Medio | Senses of Migration, makes a solid case for seeing artwork IRL sometimes instead of on a screen.

The exhibition En Medio | Senses of Migrations is on view at the Lilley Museum of Art at UNR through Jan. 15, 2022.
On Nov. 5, artist and composer Guillermo Galindo, whose found-object musical instruments are in the exhibition, will give a talk at the Nevada Museum of Art from noon-1 pm and a performance, Sonic Borders, at the Lilley at 6 pm.
