Curated by Aurore Giguet “Yesterday& Today” demonstrates a continuum of making and creating by the native peoples of southern Nevada. The exhibition features basketry and pottery from the Barrick’s cultural collection as well as objects from the Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas; The Lost City Museum; Nevada Arts Council; and works by contemporary artists and artisans.
Aschheim, noted for her installations, brings to the museum a new series of drawings. The drawings, made from photographs found at historical archives, are of people responding to the presence and loss of President John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy. The drawings are intended to reveal viewer’s memories of the past to help understand the present. Aschheim will serve as Artist-in-Residence for the UNLV Department of Art until the end of the semester.
