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.
