RENO, Nev. - The Nevada Museum of Art has received a grant of $10.5 million from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, the largest single grant in the museum's 70-year history.
The money will be used for the construction of the Donald W. Reynolds Center for the Visual Arts in Reno.
Plans for the facility are in the development stage. The museum staff is working with an architect and builders to complete the design and plan for the center.
The foundation based in Las Vegas was founded in 1954 by the late owner of the Donrey Media Group. Its Nevada properties are the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the Ely Daily Times, KOLO-TV in Reno and Donrey Outdoor in Reno and Las Vegas.
