Fine Arts In The News
The University of Nevada Las Vegas announced that interdisciplinary artist, critic, and educator Marcus Civin has been named chair of the department of art at the College of Fine Arts effective July 15.
Young artists have it tough. If they work in classic genres, like landscape and portraiture, they risk appearing quaint. Traditional art objects, like painting and sculpture, are usually suspect, since conceptual art, performance art and installation art replaced objects with ideas long ago.

They did it again. The students of UNLV’s Jazz Studies program not only were invited back to the Monterey Next Generation Jazz competition, staged March 9-11, but saw their Honors Combo win first place in the College Jazz Combo category. It’s the second victory in as many years by UNLV’s jazz musicians, as Jazz Ensemble I tied for first last year in the College Big Band category (it placed as a finalist during this month’s contest, which also saw Las Vegas Academy of the Arts’ big band compete in the high school division). The Honors trio, meanwhile, has already been asked to return to Northern California to perform during the revered Monterey Jazz Festival in September.
