The Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH) is excited to announce the opening of Made in the Mojave on May 13, with a public reception from 4-6 p.m.
Made in the Mojave celebrates the subtle beauty, rich history, and plentiful resources of the Mojave Desert. Made in the Mojave focuses on the landscape interpreted through a variety of media, from painting, to photography, to social practice, this exhibition is sure to awaken within visitors a new found appreciation for the nuanced splendor of the desert. Featured solo exhibits include artists Samantha Fields, Kim Stringfellow, Carol Es, Catherine Ruane, Aline Mare, Ron Pinkerton, Nicolas Shake, and a site specific installations by Randi Hokett and local artist Marthe Aponte. This exhibition expands our idea of the desert and its relevance in our daily lives. In addition to the professional artist presentations the Museum is honored to highlight the work of R. Rex Parris High School students’ Wasteland project on the rooftop terrace. MOAH’s Green Initiative Wasteland project was led by Los Angeles artist Nicolas Shake working in conjunction with R. Rex Parris High School art instructor Kris Holladay and her students.
As part of the Made in the Mojave exhibit, MOAH and Lancaster Museum and Public Art Foundation will host the 5th Annual Mother’s Day Tea. Guests at the Tea from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on May 13, will have the opportunity to preview the exhibition with artist Samantha Fields, all while indulging in a champagne reception with a delicious multi-course catered menu featuring fresh produce from local farms while watching a special Wearable Art Fashion Show. Event tickets for the Mother’s Day Tea can be purchased from www.lmpaf.org for $45.
Made in the Mojave will be on display until July 30. From April 17 to May 12 MOAH will be dark, prior to the opening reception on May 13.
