He's also a fan of what others accomplished. Michael Ogilvie and Checko Salgado joined other public art believers on the opening day of Seven Magic Mountains, produced by Art Production Fund and Nevada Museum of Art.
FIELD NOTES: The pro-public art community is still lurching with the news that Michael Ogilvie traded in his local public art leadership post for one in San Jose, California. Public Art Director no less. As Clark County's Public Art Cultural Specialist, Ogilvie curated a broad portfolio of sculpture and programming in just a few short years, deftly guided artists, some new to public art, through bureaucracy and shenanigans to give the region a stronger public art profile. Though he and artist/teacher wife Elizabeth will be relocating in January there are a few projects that will be completed after leaves Las Vegas.
