Nevada Museum of Art – Reno

Dead Birds.2The Nevada Museum of Art in Reno has to be one of the best, if not the best, art museum beyond major hubs like New York and Chicago. Lucky me, I enjoyed lunch at the in-house Chez Louie restaurant and took in Late Harvest, the 40-artist exhibit last Thursday (December 18). Richard and I drove straight from the airport to the museum. Curated by JoAnne Northrup, the paintings, sculpture, and taxidermy “explores the relationship between humans and animals   . . . . the roles of predator and prey. . .  .”  Andrew Zuckerman wowed me with images of a great bear, a lion’s head, and the deer creature in my photo gallery. I grew up in the great city of Newark, and the installation of trash and animals speaks to my experience. (Another wowser!) For an overview of exhibits, and all of the exhibits are fabulous, visit the web site. Better yet, when you are in Reno reward yourself with a few hours of total pleasure by visiting the museum.
