“Crowd Burst” reception

March 24 at 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm


“Crowd Burst”is an exhibition consisting of a new mixed media photographic installation by Las Vegas artist Heather Protz.

Titled From the Series: “Crowd Burst – Fremont 2,” this installation piece builds on the expansive body of black and white photographs in Protz’s dynamic ongoing series, “Turning the Tables: A View from the Street (2014 – present).” Combining street photography with reflective material, the artist fills the Marjorie Barrick Museum’s outdoor Window Gallery with a compact work that brings every passer-by into the space of a Las Vegas crowd. Crowd Burst represents a fresh development in Protz’s ongoing quest to find the elusive moments that reveal the essence of quotidian life in the city.

Speaking about “Turning the Tables” for the Lenscratch States Project in 2015, she said, β€œShooting in the photographic tradition of street photography, Las Vegas, my hometown, became a rich source of inspiration. From Vegas I have ventured to other cities, photographing the locals, the tourists, the young, the old, the affluent, and the down and out. From the ordinary actions of the natives to the curiosity of the sightseer, this series examines the daily experience of people navigating a city.”

Crowd Burst will be on view at the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art at UNLV from March 14-July 8.
