The Lost City Museum presents the artwork of The Moapa Valley Art Guild in May, including watercolor, colored pencil, oil, acrylics, gourds, jewelry and table art made by area residents.

Art instructor Max Bunnell is featured. When he founded The Moapa Valley Art Guild in 1959, Bunnell wanted the local community to have original works of art hanging in their homes and to stimulate artistic interest in the local community. The Moapa Valley Art Guild now presents a number of exhibits and events during the year. It also holds fundraisers to finance art scholarships for high school students and the valley’s Pomegranate Festival, set for Nov. 4 -5.
