Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas Extends Liberace Exhibit
The Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas exhibition about performer and Las Vegas icon, Liberace, will remain on site until April 29, 2024, extending the dates by four more months. Liberace: Real and Beyond was set to close at the end of the year, but due to the positive feedback from the community, the dates were extended to allow more people to see the collection that outlines the musician’s life through his personal effects and photos.
“We were anticipating that this show would resonate with our residents and visitors,” Josef Diaz, Curator of History and Material Culture, explains, “and our attendance numbers are confirming that. The opening reception was the most attended event in the museum’s history.”
Liberace: Real and Beyond is a partnership with the Liberace Foundation for the Performing and Creative Arts that runs the Liberace Museum Collection from Thriller Villa and Liberace Garage in Las Vegas. The Foundation is allowing the loans of the items to be extended so even more visitors can experience the exhibit.
A members-only closing reception will be held on Sunday, April 28 from 12:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. with refreshments. For more information about memberships and the museum, visit www.lasvegasnvmuseum.org.
