Nevada Museum of Art

The only accredited art museum in the state of Nevada is located just 2 blocks from our condo. I went over there yesterday morning in the drizzle to check out the art.


The exhibition, Chris Jordan: Running the Numbers, was fascinating.


Photographer Chris Jordan takes statistics that are too big for the mind to grasp and makes them shockingly beautiful for the eye to behold: 2 million plastic bottles used every five minutes, 426,000 cell phones retired every day, 2.3 million prison uniforms representing the number of Americans incarcerated annually.

Among the many photographs in the exhibition Ansel Adams: Distance and Detail was the original of the print I have hanging at home.
