TAHOE_JACKET_2_12_2015

TAHOE: A Visual History, will be the first comprehensive exhibition and book to survey artworks related to Lake Tahoe, Pyramid Lake, Donner Lake, and the nearby Sierra region. This exhibition is organized by the Nevada Museum of Art and will be on view in many of the Museum’s galleries.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a 500-page book, designed by legendary San Francisco designer Kit Hinrichs, co-founder of Pentagram. The book will be published by Skira Rizzoli (the largest art book publisher in the world), and internationally distributed by Random House (the largest book distributor in the world).This large format, deluxe publication will serve as the definitive survey of art of the Lake Tahoe region. The book will feature a rich, fabric-covered sleeve and full-color, full-page reproductions.

The exhibition and book will include hundreds of Washoe Native American baskets and historical paintings by artists like Albert Bierstadt and Thomas Hill, photographs by Ansel Adams and Carleton Watkins, never-realized architectural cabin designs by Frank Lloyd Wright, and perhaps most significantly, newly-commissioned artworks by contemporary artist and architect, Maya Lin, who is perhaps most well-known for designing the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D. C. and is now known for her landscape-based sculptures. The exhibition will travel to the Oakland Museum of California in early 2016..
