Just outside the Barrick Museum, UNLV art major Sena Kimura uses the Xeric Garden for a drawing class assignment by Audrey Barcio. The garden was first designed to be an extension of the Barrick when it was natural history museum, according to a 2010 post at UNLV. “The garden features plants from Australia, South America, Mexico, the Mediterranean and plants native to the four desert regions of North America. Some of the plant-life found at the site includes: Blue Yucca, Agave, Eucalyptus, Jojoba, and the Creosote bush.” Barcio, and other art faculty, use the garden as an art lab.
