Made in the Mojave celebrates the subtle beauty, rich history, and plentiful resources of the Mojave Desert. As the landscape is interpreted through a variety of media, from painting, to photography, to social practice, this exhibition is sure to awaken within visitors a newfound appreciation for the nuanced splendor of the desert. Featuring the work of Samantha Fields, Carol Es, Aline Mare, Catherine Ruane, and the public debut of Guggenheim fellowship recipient Kim Stringfellow’s Mojave Project, as well as local artists Marthe Aponte, Ron Pinkerton and the found art sculpture of Wasteland 2017, a collaboration between MOAH visiting artist Nicolas Shake and the students of R. Rex Parris High School, this exhibition runs from May 13 through July 30, 2017. MOAH’s annual Mother’s Day Tea fundraiser, a ticketed event occurring on May 13 from 11:30 a.m. – 2 p.m., offers an exclusive first look at the artwork, preceding the Museum’s free, public opening reception, from 4 – 6 p.m. on the same day. MOAH invites you to begin your summer by celebrating the wealth of ecological resources and aesthetic inspiration that the desert has to offer!
