America’s Art, Nevada’s Choice:
Community Selections from the Smithsonian American Art Museum

E.L. Wiegand Gallery | Floor 2

The Nevada Museum of Art has been selected to participate in a five-year exhibition partnership with the Smithsonian American Art Museum (SAAM) made possible by Art Bridges and the Terra Foundation for American Art. The local kickoff to this multi-year, multi-institutional partnership starts with a community-wide campaign, “Vote Nevada Art.” During this month-long vote (July 11 – August 11, 2019) the public will decide which artworks will come to the Museum for a year-long exhibition opening this fall.

SAAM is making a group of eight paintings available for this exhibition, including works by Childe Hassam, David Hockney, Edward Hopper, George Inness, Jacob Lawrence, Georgia O’Keeffe, Angel Rodríguez-Díaz, and Severin Roesen. From this group, the three artworks that receive the most votes will “win,” and will be on view in America’s Art, Nevada’s Choice: Community Selections from the Smithsonian American Art Museum, opening November 7, 2019, with a press conference and “big reveal” celebration. To learn more about this five-year collaboration with SAAM and four partner museums across the American West read the press release.

 

This is one in a series of American art exhibitions created through a multi-year, multi-institutional partnership formed by the Smithsonian American Art Museum as part of the Art Bridges + Terra Foundation Initiative.

 

America’s Art, Nevada’s Choice at the Nevada Museum of Art is exclusively sponsored by Art Bridges, the Terra Foundation for American Art, and the E. L. Wiegand Foundation.
