In 1997, with the assistance Nevada Assemblywoman Vonne Chowning, Nevada Arts Council and VSA Nevada partnered to developed the “Rich in Art” license plate to raise funds for children’s art programming in Nevada and to raise awareness of the importance of arts in Nevada for ALL.

All entries for the license plate art competition adorn the wall in this picture.Approximately 800 entrants were reviewed before the final entry from Beth Finta was selected.


Beth Finta was chosen as finalist for the license plate competition with her design feature a tree and two multicolored wolves and a backdrop of yellow mountains, blue sky, and a red sun.


Many VSA Nevada program are funded by your purchase of the “Rich in Art” (children in the arts) license plate.  These programs include: workshops in self-contained and general education classrooms, a Firefighter’s party for homeless youth, after-school programs for children and more.

“It’s not an education without the Arts ~ TM”.   Nevada’s first Arts License Plate is available at DMV field offices statewide. The plate, designated by DMV as the “Children in the Arts” license plate, is available in a standard or personalized format.
