This spring, the department of art and the Vegas Institute of Contemporary Engagement present a weekend of safe and remote-viewing art events for MFA Open Studios.
Visitors are invited to view work from the safety of their cars in a drive-through art event Friday, May 7, and Saturday, May 8, 6 - 9 p.m.. The Graduate Art Studios are located in a former Carl's Jr., complete with drive through windows. At the Drive Through Open Studios, video projections, paintings, sculptures, and window art all can be experienced from the parking lot.
Additionally, a virtual artist talk event will take place Thursday, May 6, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Zoom and Facebook, and will allow the public the opportunity to hear the artists discuss their work in depth.
The annual Open Studios event is an opportunity to engage with Master of Fine Arts candidates in art and experience works in video, installation, painting, performance, collage, sculpture, and photography. This year’s artists are exploring a wide range of contemporary themes and conceptual concerns including play and process, gender and the body, indigenous cultures, digital identities, and more.
Please note that for the safety of our community, all campus visitors are required to wear a face-covering at all times.
