Examining loss, change, and abandonment in the American West
through the lenses of three photographers.
The Great Basin, the vast, arid region between California's Sierra Nevada Mountains and Utah's Wasatch Range, encompasses the state of Nevada and parts of Idaho, Oregon, and Wyoming.
Great Basin Exteriors: A Photographic Survey examines loss, change, and abandonment in the American West through the lenses of three photographers: Daniel Cheek, Adam Jahiel, and Nolan Preece. Each photographer focuses on subjects that are changing in or disappearing from the Great Basin.
This exhibit, organized by the Nevada Arts Council, is part of the Nevada Touring Initiative – Traveling Exhibition Program, and is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, Nevada State Legislature and Western States Arts Federation. The Nevada Arts Council is a division of the Department of Tourism and Cultural Affairs.
