Opening Reception: Art Exhibitions
Join us for a reception at the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art as we welcome three new exhibitions: Modern Desert Markings: An Homage to Las Vegas Area Land Art, Am I Your Type, and Crowd Burst.
Modern Desert Markings considers five historic works of Southern Nevada Land Art through the perspectives of ten contemporary artists. Am I Your Type is a group exhibition centered around the artistic possibilities of text and typefaces, while Crowd Burst is a new mixed media photographic installation by Las Vegas artist Heather Protz.
After introductory remarks from the Museum, curators Katie Hoffman and Hikmet Sidney Loe will talk about the process of creating Modern Desert Markings. Las Vegas poet Ms.AyeVee will then read new poetry inspired by her encounters with Land Art sites.
The reception will run from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. with remarks beginning at 6:15. All three exhibitions—Modern Desert Markings: An Homage to Las Vegas Area Land Art, Am I Your Type, and Crowd Burst—are on view at the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art from March 14 - July 8, 2023. Entry to the Museum is free. Masks are recommended.
Modern Desert Markings is co-produced by Nevadans for Cultural Preservation.
This event is free and all are welcome.
