Nevada Humanities

Nevada Humanities provides opportunities for Nevadans to explore, experience, engage, and understand the world around them. We create programs and support projects that define the Nevada experience, feature local culture and heritage, and facilitate the investigation of ideas that matter to Nevadans and their communities.

Located in the historic Pioneer Building in downtown Elko, Nevada, its exhibitions, educational programs, national radio and television programs, research and preservation projects, and its premier annual event, the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, explore and give voice to traditional and dynamic cultures of the American West.
