The Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art supports smart, passionate art writing from Southern Nevada and beyond. Our new publication, Dry Heat, is a platform where we can share artist interviews, essays about art that matters, and more. The first issue includes a new article by Dr. Erika Abad about Las Vegas artists Brent Holmes, Chase R. McCurdy, and Lance L. Smith; a behind-the-scenes column by Tracy Fuentes; and an interview between Holmes and two of the sign spinners from Yumi Janairo Roth’s ongoing project Spin (after Sol LeWitt). You can read Dry Heat for free online at our publications page (https://issuu.com/unlvmuseum/
Dry Heat was funded in part by Nancy J. Uscher, Dean of the UNLV College of Fine Arts, with support from Nevada Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
