Artist: Nevada Touring Initiative
Basin and Range features eighteen Southern Nevada artists who were invited to create as a response to and in honor of a tract of Nevada land covering 700,000 acres, now identified as the Basin and Range National Monument. This area not only includes amazing wildlife and incredible desert landscapes and formations, but also ancient and contemporary artwork: hundreds of petroglyphs carved an estimated 4,000 years ago, and Michael Heizer’s mile-long City. As most Nevadans know, there is a great deal more to our state than casinos and Area 51. The Basin and Range exhibition is evidence of that.
Closing Reception: Thursday February 15, 5 – 7pm
Artist Talk: 5:30 PL320
