Mining Company Donates Land

ELKO, Nev. - The Goldwell Open Air Museum has announced that Barrick Gold Corp., former operators of the Barrick Bullfrog Mine near Beatty, Nevada has donated a 1.8-acre parcel with a 2,250-square-foot "Red Barn" for development into a community arts center last February.

The Red Barn is near the museum's 7.8-acre sculpture site in the ghost town of Rhyolite. The museum is best known for its life-size, ghostly sculptures by the late Belgian artist Albert Szukalski.

Museum officials plan to renovate the facility into several art studios and a large multipurpose programming space over the next 18-24 months. The museum plans to offer short- and long-term residencies to professional artists, writers and filmmakers, as well as workshops and exhibitions for the general public.
