The Contemporary Arts Center & the Barrick Museum Presents... It's a Blur artist talk.....

After 22 years the Contemporary Arts Center keeps moving forward by bringing great and thought provoking art to Las Vegas. This time they have teamed up with the Barrick Museum at UNLV and SOMArts Cultural Center in San Francisco to present a new exhibition. Its good to know that this survivor of the Contemporary Art world is still going when so many others have disappeared. Makes you want to be a part of it doesn't it?

It’s All a Blur is a multi-media exhibition featuring three prolific and highly influential California masters who are simultaneously professional visual artists, educators and community activists with three distinct but mutually informed bodies of work spanning over 75 combined years of investigative artistic production, analysis and cultural criticism.

Meet the artists from the new exhibit opening at the Contemporary Arts Center, "It's All A Blur", who will be giving a special talk open to the public on March 15th from 6:00pm-8:00pm at the Marjorie Barrick Museum, UNLV. Come out to meet the artists, hear about the creation process, ask questions and engage in discussion on art and the creative process.
