About the partnership: This summer the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art celebrates the work of Andrew Schoultz with an exhibition titled "In Process: Every Movement Counts." But art shouldn’t stop at the doors of a museum. We’re proud to support Schoultz as he brings art out of the institution and into the community with a complete repainting of the Clark County Winchester Cultural Center Community Skatepark. An international fine artist, Schoultz is also a skater and street muralist who understands how color and design can stimulate our imaginations when we encounter them in our everyday environment. The Winchester Cultural Center has always been a place that introduces Las Vegas to the arts, and we hope this collaboration will give enjoyment to skaters, families, and other visitors for years to come.

More about the artist: A graduate of the Academy of Art University, San Francisco, multimedia artist Andrew Schoultz has held solo exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the United States and Europe. His public murals are visible on walls in Manila, Philippines, and Jogjakarta, Indonesia, as well as on skateparks, an airplane, and a Tesla. Schoultz’s work is held in the collections of numerous institutions, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Los Angeles Contemporary Art Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, and the Honolulu Art Museum.

More about the exhibition: Fusing museum space with the dynamic energy of streets and skate parks, Andrew Schoultz makes art that asks questions about the reality of contemporary life and global power. His installations and murals juxtapose ideas from illuminated manuscripts, ancient cartography, and the flattened space of Persian miniatures. Images of beasts, bricks, trees, and eyes surge across the walls, bringing different elements of the artist's mark-making vocabulary into play as he charts a struggle between visual clarity and complex truth. Experience new work and a museum-wide installation by this Los Angeles artist at the UNLV Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art from June 2 to September 15, 2018. Opening reception, Saturday, June 2, 5-8 pm. Free and open to the public.
