The McKinley Galleries are open Monday - Friday from 8:00 - 5:00.
The artwork from the students at Doral Academy is colorful and bold. The images and sculptures are strikingly graphic, some almost becoming abstracted. “Our Home, Our Nevada” features work by students from 3rd to 7th grade. They have made work in multiple mediums in both two and three dimensions. The galleries are filled to bursting with batik prints and papier-mâché animal heads. Another wall features watercolor and pastel paintings. All the work references Nevada through its nature, landscapes, and activities; though, some pieces delve into the fantasy of childhood.
