The Capital City Arts Initiative presents Home Means Nevada at the CCAI Courthouse Gallery through June 30.
This exhibition echoes famous photographs and artwork from the late 1800s and early 1900s that helped spur protections for places like Yellowstone, Yosemite, and the Grand Canyon. Like the state’s song, Home Means Nevada, this is a place of inspiration for the photographers who find beauty in her rugged geology and starry skies.
This show features work by 15 photographers and highlights some of the treasures found on federally-managed lands across the state, from bighorns to Burning Man, to the ancient rock art and petroglyphs in the Gold Butte area.
The exhibition artists include Nevadans: Olin Feuerbacher, Pahrump; Peter Goin, Reno; Mike Hill, Las Vegas; Julian Kilker, Las Vegas; Kurt Kuznicki, Reno; Bruce Loeffler, Las Vegas; Alan O’Neill, Henderson; Robert Park, Las Vegas; Will Roger Petersen, Gerlach; Kimberly Reinhart, Henderson; Deon Reynolds, Eureka; Sharon K. Schafer, Henderson; and Cristian Torres, Las Vegas. In addition, the show includes work by Kelly Carroll from Hagatna, Guam, and Sam Davis of Cedar City, Utah.
Home Means Nevada is based on an exhibition installed on Sept. 26, 2016, in the rotunda of the Senate Russell Building in Washington, D.C. The exhibit was organized by the National Parks Conservation Association and curated by University of Nevada Las Vegas professor Sergio “Checko” Salgado with help from wildlife biologist Paula Jacoby-Garrett. The show, now part of the Nevada Arts Council’s Nevada Touring Initiative, travels throughout the state.
The Initiative is funded by the John Ben Snow Memorial Trust, John and Grace Nauman Foundation, Nevada Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities, Carson City Cultural Commission, Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, Kaplan Family Charitable Fund, U.S. Bank Foundation, RISE, Nancy Raven, Southwest Gas Corporation Foundation, Steele & Associates LLC, and CCAI sponsors and members.
