Some Tix Still Available For "This Time Around: Surreal Signs" At The Neon Museum
The Neon Museum North Gallery will be the site of “This Time Around: Surreal Signs,” an art and public engagement program presented by Fall Artist in Residence Mikayla Whitmore.
Funded in part by grants from the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, this residency calls for the artist to create a project incorporating the outdoor space at the Neon Museum’s North Gallery. Whitmore’s winning proposal incorporates making a miniature version or surreal diorama of the Las Vegas Strip. During the public workshop, guests will be invited to build miniature signs based on real Las Vegas marquees currently on the Strip or housed in the Neon Museum. Using simple materials, including cardstock, watercolors, markers, glitter and glue, guests can replicate existing signs or transform them into their own, unique vision.
Las Vegas native Mikayla Whitmore received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas with a concentration in photography. She has exhibited her work in solo and group shows throughout Las Vegas as well as in California. Her work addresses the transience and unreliability of memory and photography’s role in the capture, shaping and loss of memory.
