When the Barrick Museum staff mingle with artists, the public, or UNLV faculty and students, some of the best conversations about art happens in a loose informal way. Is it because there is an exhibition that needs discussion? Is the general vibe of the museum as a source for contemporary art? For whatever reason the setting welcomes casual conversation. With the right guests, and adding coffee or tea, you have an art-centric Saturday afternoon. The talk and tea with prose and poet POV begins at 2 pm.
If you come early, there is a screening of Ellsworth Kelly "Fragments" in the auditorium at 1pm. From the release:
THE PROSE: Kristen Peterson, Arts Reporter for Las Vegas Weekly, has seen the local art trends, newsmakers and events unfold since she focused on art in 2003. I regard her a cultural journalist more than in-house critic.
THE POET: Angela Brommel, Director of Arts & Culture Initiatives for Nevada State College, impacted the local arts scene by curating recent acquisitions for the new campus facilities at NSC.
