May 21 – August 22, 2015
In conjunction with the exhibition opening of “Re:Visioning the West,” the theme of this Banner Project asked artists to create pieces inspired by the re-examination of the cliché and nostalgic Old West in order to see it in a fresh light. The project’s objective is to create an outdoor gallery experience, which echoes the exhibition within the UAG. A reception for the selected artists will be held during the opening of “Re:Visioning of the West” on May 21, 2015, from 5 p.m-7 p.m. The banners will be exhibited from May 21 – August 22, 2015.
