About Alisha

Alisha Kerlin is the Executive Director of UNLV’s Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art.  Committed to leveling barriers that limit access to the arts, especially for first-time visitors, Kerlin has created initiatives that target both the academic community and K-12 schoolchildren. Through the museum, she supports artists that make art that challenges our understanding of the present and inspires us to create a future that holds space for us all. A graduate of the University of Tennessee (BFA) and the Milton Avery Graduate School of Arts, Bard College (MFA), she connects the university to a top-tier cohort of emerging scholars and artists.
