HOME MEANS NEVADA Exhibition

15/06/2024 |Changing Gallery|

Nevada is a state of spectacular geography, unique natural features and poignant history. It is defined by its public lands — national parks and conservation areas, wilderness and wildlife refuges, forests, rangelands, and watersheds — all of which provide diverse benefits to Nevadans and the travelers who visit.

Home Means Nevada, themed around Nevada’s state song of the same title, is a photography exhibit that 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. Nevada is a place of inspiration for the photographers who find beauty in her rugged geology and starry skies. This show features 15 photographers and highlights some of the unique 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.

Home Means Nevada is based on an exhibition installed on September 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. This exhibition is part of the Nevada Arts Council’s Nevada Touring Initiative-Traveling Exhibition Program and is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts and the State of Nevada. The Nevada Arts Council is a division of the Department of Tourism and Cultural Affairs.
