Nevada Museum of Art news release:
As consumers we often take the source of our power supply for granted, paying little attention to how energy is generated and distributed. Joan Myers’ Western Power exhibition, running through Dec. 6, documents a range of power plants—uranium, oil, gas, coal, water, solar, wind and geothermal—throughout the western United States, causing viewers to consider our electrical dependency.
The photographs in this exhibition are a part of the Nevada Museum of Art, The Altered Landscape: Carol Franc Buck Collection. Admission is free for museum members, $10 for adults, $8 for students and seniors, $1 for children 6-12 and free for children under six. For more information, please call 329.3333 or visit www.nevadaart.org.
