Native American exhibit at the Nevada Museum of Art

RENO, Nevada (KOLO) – You are invited to a special exhibit of Native American art beginning Saturday, January 29 and running through May 29 at the Nevada Museum of Art.

The Native American artist responsible for creating all artwork is Jean LaMarr.

She grew up in Susanville and admits she was the target of racist comments and behavior, but says she didn’t fully understand the questioning of authority and the status quo until she studied fine art and printmaking at UC Berkley.

The exhibition presents 50 years of his work.

It challenges stereotypes and honors and respects the vibrant Native American cultures throughout the Northern California and Nevada region.

The exhibition presents more than just works of art hanging on the walls.

“There are also interactive installations that we have recreated throughout Jean’s career and they are very participatory. So there’s a bit of something for everyone,” said the Nevada Museum of Art‘s chief curator.
