In celebration of International Museum Day, the Rita Deanin Abbey Art Museum will offer free admission to all guests on Thursday, May 18.
Tucked away in a residential area in northwest Las Vegas, the museum features an astonishing array of art entirely by multidisciplinary artist, Rita Deanin Abbey.
The 10,500-square-foot museum captures the extraordinary breadth of her art, including abstract expressionism, figures, landscapes and non-objective subject matter, heavily influenced by scenic southwestern landscapes.
The museum property also offers a courtyard, desert garden and outdoor sculpture garden.
“We’re thrilled to be celebrating our first official International Museum Day and share Rita’s legacy,” said Laura Sanders, executive director of the Rita Deanin Abbey Art Museum. “From art aficionados to those who are simply curious to learn and experience art, we want the Rita Deanin Abbey Art Museum to be a place that brings joy to everyone.”
Since opening to the public in 2022, the museum has received rave reviews. According to Las Vegas Weekly, “The museum is – and deserves to be – a pillar of Vegas pride.” Thrillist Las Vegas wrote, “The Rita Deanin Abbey Museum is a wonderful surprise, hiding in plain sight.” Desert Companion noted, “The boggling variety, the dramatic productivity, the cornucopian muchness – that’s the first thing that hits you about the late Rita Deanin Abbey.”
Complimentary tickets will be offered exclusively on International Museum Day with limited availability and by appointment only. Tickets are normally priced at $20.
