RENO — The Nevada Museum of Art will show films today and Saturday and on Friday an artist will discuss how she creates stained glass windows and lamp shades.

Today at 6 p.m., the film “Unbreakable: The Western States 100” will be shown. In 2010, four of the greatest undefeated mountain runners on Earth toed the starting line at the Western States 100-mile endurance run, the oldest and most prestigious 100-mile foot race in the world. “Unbreakable,” a film directed by Reno filmmaker JB Benna, documents their competition. Though all four begin the race undefeated, only one can remain “unbreakable.”

Tickets cost $10 for the general public and $8 for museum members.

On Friday from noon to 12:45 p.m., celebrate art of the Tiffany Era with stained glass artist Cindy Oberlander as she describes the materials, methods, and processes involved in the creation of stained glass windows and lamp shades.

Admission costs $10 for the general public, and $8 for museum members.

On Saturday at 2 p.m., NMA will preview the PBS premiere of the sixth season of “Art in the Twenty-First Century,” the only prime time national television series focused exclusively on contemporary art. In this episode, artists Marina Abramovic, Glenn Ligon and Mary Reid Kelley play with historical events, explore and expose commonly held assumptions about historic “truth” and create narratives based on personal experiences. The museum, in partnership with Art21, presents a sneak preview in advance of every Saturday in April. The screenings are free and open to the public. See them again on KNPB the following Friday.

The Nevada Museum of Art is located at 160 W. Liberty St. in Reno. For more information, visit www.nevadaart.org.
