> DESCRIPTION

"Greetings From Nada Motel", an art exhibition celebrating the best of the best from Reno's art-in-motel-rooms event continues at the Barrick Museum of Natural History and Culture, 4505 Maryland Parkway, Las Vegas, Nevada 89154 until April 20th.

"Greetings" is the follow-up to 2008's "Selections From Dada Motel" exhibition, which was also curated by Chad Sorg, one of the masterminds behind Nada Motel, at the Barrick Museum. Both exhibitions reflect the odd mix of aesthetics that the motel event has inspired.

There is no selection committee or jury deciding which artists will fill motel rooms, it's first come first served and Sorg's "Greetings" mirrors that tenet of eclectic juxtapositions. You'll see painting/drawing, photography, bronze, ceramic, installation/assemblage, neon, digital and video. Most of the work is contemporary and the artists are seasoned veterans with awards too numerous to name.
