It was announced today that Las Vegas artist David Sanchez Burr is the first artist-in-residence for the Neon Museum. Burr’s family-friendly citizen speak will be built and installed in the Neon Museum’s North Gallery on Saturday, April 18, and Sunday, April 19. It then moves to the Marjorie Barrick Museum at UNLV from April 27 to May 20. A reception for the artist will be Saturday, May 2, at 1 p.m. From the release.
'citizen speak' will be an interactive work of art involving audio and video media, modified specifically for children. For this project, Sanchez Burr will create a portable version of his projectnowhereradio, which began in 2011 as part of a personal journey to produce an artwork that would encourage meaning and interactivity with the audience as a social event and broadcast.
