Description

The Neon Museum inaugurates it's Artist-in-Residence program with Las Vegas-based artist David Sanchez Burr (UNLV MFA '09). His work, titled citizen speak, will be built and exhibited in the Neon Museum’s North Gallery on April 18 and 19, before being transferred to the Barrick Museum.

A partnership between the Neon Museum and the Barrick Museum, the residency calls for artist-parents to create work inspired and enjoyed by their children—and, by extension, children of all ages. The first part of the project is housed at the Neon Museum and the second part at the Barrick Museum.

Citizen speak is an interactive work of art involving audio and video media, modified specifically for children. For this project, Sanchez Burr created a portable version of his project nowhereradio, which began in 2011 as part of a personal journey to produce an artwork that would encourage meaning and interactivity with the audience as a social event and broadcast.
