Lost City Museum presents artwork of Dale Cox

OVERTON, Nevada – Long before it became a vocation, art weaved its way into Dale Cox’s everyday life.

Through his service in the military and professional career as a civil engineer, highway designer and tunnel coordinator, Cox enjoyed the design elements of his work.

After retirement from engineering, he pursued his love of art, woodworking and travel, including visiting many museums around the world – drawing inspiration for his own artwork from his experiences.

Cox is the featured artist for February at the Lost City Museum. The museum is open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

His artwork has been exhibited through Southern Nevada and his paintings are part of permanent collections throughout the West. In addition to his artwork, Cox is a volunteer at the Atomic Testing Museum, the Spring Mountain Ranch and at the Boulder City Artist Guild and Gallery.

The Lost City Museum actively engages people in understanding and celebrating Nevada’s natural and cultural heritage. One of seven museums managed by the Nevada Division of Museums and History, an agency of the Nevada Department of Tourism and Cultural Affairs, it is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily at 721 S. Moapa Valley Blvd., Overton. Admission is $5, children 17 and younger and members enter free. Take Interstate 15 north to exit 93. Access is also available from Lake Mead National Recreation Area or the Valley of Fire State Park. For more information, call the museum at (702) 397-2193 or visit Facebook.
