Virtual Educator Evenings
Educators across the state of Nevada are invited to join us for a discussion on the intersections of art, storytelling and history with Allison Janae Hamilton, a visual artist working in sculpture, installation, photography, and video. Hamilton creates immersive spaces that consider the ways that the American landscape contributes to our ideas of “Americana.” Through blending land-centered folklore and personal family history, Hamilton engages haunting yet epic mythologies that address the social and political concerns of today’s changing southern terrain, including land loss, environmental justice, climate change, and sustainability.
Allison Janae Hamilton’s work is part of the Museum’s permanent collection and on view through August 1 in the exhibition “Shifting Horizons.”
Educator Evening is a FREE professional development series on the first Wednesday of every month (excluding January and July) offering state-approved professional development hours for participation. Continuing education hours are available for participating in the Educator Evenings. Certificates are issued in January and July.
This program is hosted virtually on Zoom.
Sponsored by the Robert Z. Hawkins Foundation, Bank of America and the Nell J. Redfield Foundation.
