Nevada Museum of Art Now Offers Free Student Admission to UNR and TMCC

RENO, Nevada (KOLO) – The Nevada Museum of Art has announced a free admission program for local higher education students. This gift to students at NUR and TMCC was made possible by a generous donation of $2 million from Wayne Prim.

The Wayne Prim Free Admission Endowment Program will allow over 30,000 students to access and experience a world-class art museum. Students will be able to attend NMA’s premier Thursday events and art lectures.

The free admission program for students demonstrates the Museum’s commitment to arts, culture and education.

David Walker, CEO of NMA, shared what it means for our local higher education students to have this opportunity in perpetuity,

“It’s really important to recognize that we see ourselves as a big part of the education ecosystem here in Northern Nevada, so I want our community and especially our students to enjoy everything this museum has to offer” , Walker said.

UNR and TMCC students can now visit the museum for free anytime during their opening hours. To celebrate this donation, a ribbon-cutting ceremony for this program will take place today at the TMCC Dandini campus.
