The Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art hosts a reception to welcome three new exhibitions: Modern Desert Markings: An Homage to Las Vegas Area Land Art, Am I Your Type, and Crowd Burst from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, March 24. Remarks begin at 6:15 p.m. The exhibitions are on view through July 8. The event is free and open to the public.
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.
Modern Desert Markings is co-produced by Nevadans for Cultural Preservation.

About the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art
The Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art believes everyone deserves access to art that challenges our understanding of the present and inspires us to create a future that holds space for us all. Located on the campus of one of the most racially diverse universities in the U.S., we strive to create a nourishing environment for those who continue to be neglected by contemporary art museums. As the only art museum in the city of Las Vegas, we commit ourselves to leveling barriers that limit access to the arts. Our collection of artworks offers an opportunity for everyone to develop a deeper knowledge of contemporary art in Southern Nevada. The Barrick Museum is part of the College of Fine Arts at the University of Nevada Las Vegas.
