On behalf of my former MFA colleagues I break from PaintThisDesert protocol of not just sticking up a flyer. The UNLV Department of Art presents another edition of MFA Open Studios on Friday, December 7, from 6 to 9 p.m. From the release:
¡Americanx! art objects frame Green Hornet, a 1970 Schwinn Stingray Bicycle modified by REYMUNDO “STINGREY” MORALES .
All photos by Ed Fuentes
While ¡Americanx! was extended, we are counting down the last days of the exhibition. It closes November 21. Here are a few shots of the first exhibition with works by local Latino/a/x contemporary artists. They are hanging out at the Donna Beam Gallery of Fine Art at UNLV. Call 702-895-3893 for hours.
