Description

The UNLV Department of Art welcomes Wendy White to the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art on Thursday, 10/26/2017 at 7pm for the Fall Visiting Artist Lecture Series.

Wendy White brings graffiti-like airbrushing together with icons of modern leisure, commerce, and sports in a layered system of signs and meanings. Her work has appeared in galleries and museums around the world, including LACMA, The Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm, the Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, The Museum of Modern Art, Gunma, Japan, and Leo Koenig, Inc, New York. White is based in New York City.

The UNLV Visiting Artist Lecture Series features a diverse array of some of the most compelling artists and thinkers working in the art world today. This important program brings both established and emerging artists to campus to discuss their work in public lectures, and to offer individual critiques to our BFA and MFA students. This program has established itself as an invaluable resource for UNLV students and the public alike. The primary mission of the Visiting Artists Lecture Series is to educate, inspire and foster a greater understanding and appreciation of contemporary art through visual presentations and discourse.
