WELCOME TO THE OFFICE OF COLLECTING AND DESIGN
Located in the heart of Las Vegas, the Office of Collecting and Design is part exhibition, part archive, and part studio space for the artist and filmmaker Jessica Oreck.
A collection of collections, it is devoted to the diminutive, the discarded, the misplaced, the broken, the obsolete.
Included are objects both rare and common, precious and forgotten. Taken together, they illuminate the nature of value and meaning. Visitors have described the collections as “wondrous,” “magical,” “charming,” and “full of unexpected life.”
Functioning in part as a prop library for Jessica’s work, the collections are also a treasury of silent objects given eloquence, lonely figures given clusters of friends, and lost items given new purpose.
