The NMA's most recent special exhibit is a collection of Ancient Egyptian Artifacts from the Brooklyn Museum.
The exhibit here is called, "To Live Forever," and focuses on artifacts primarily related to preparations for and regarding, the after life. It is a very worthwhile exhibit to see, and the kids love it! There are kids activities and art sessions scheduled throughout the exhibit's time here in Reno. There are guided tours, and informational sessions as well. You should check it out. I did. Here is the NMA's page so that you can plan and schedule your visit:

Here's a detail of his(Rick) face and collar. I really love gouache. Love love love. I do need to wash out all my jars though. maybe I'll do that before our next session.
