Community Project: Join Andrew Schoultz and the Barrick Museum on April 17th at the Clark County Winchester Cultural Center Skatepark

Mar. 22, 2018

The Barrick Museum believes everyone deserves access to the arts, and this year we’re taking art into the community. Join us at the Clark County Winchester Cultural Center in April to see painter Andrew Schoultz rejuvenate the community skatepark.  On April 17, 2018, from 1 - 4 pm the Winchester Cultural Center and the Museum will host an educational community day, where everyone is invited to make a difference, contribute to the mural, and learn from the artist. The skatepark will reopen to the public on April 21st, and you can interact with Schoultz's art again on June 2nd when he’ll be back to fill the Barrick Museum with a solo installation featuring a wall where visitors can make their mark. The Barrick is on the move. Come with us. Together we can stimulate the arts across Las Vegas.

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.

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 titled In Process: Every Movement Counts by this Los Angeles artist at the UNLV Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art from June 2 to September 15, 2018.
