Photo exhibit showcasing 内华达ns, cultural identity opens at state museum in 拉斯维加斯
LAS VEGAS — “Find Your 民俗: We Are ‘the Folk,“拉菲2手机版游戏平台所有人,” is on display at the 内华达 State Museum, 拉斯维加斯; an online version of the innovative photo exhibit also is available on the museum’s website.
“We’re proud to offer this photo exhibit, which provides a nuanced look at cultural identity and how that is expressed by 内华达ns,” Sarah Hulme, who man年龄s the museum’s photos and outreach, 说.
这个展览, curated by the 内华达 Arts Council 民俗 Program, features photographs of 内华达ns dressed to represent different cultural identities, each paired with a photograph of the same person in “everyday” dress as he or she might appear at home, 工作, or enjoying recreational activities. These photo pairs have been combined on “lenticular two-flip” panels so that as the viewer approaches, he or she sees just one of the photos. As the viewer passes by the panel, it “flips” to the other im年龄 as though by magic. The effect is created by interleaving the im年龄s on narrow strips that are refracted through an overlying lens to create the startling “two-flip” effect. Each im年龄 pair is accompanied by a statement in the model’s own words that speaks to some aspect of cultural community or identity.
民俗, 民间艺术, and folklore all spring from cultural identity, which comes from belonging to a social group, according to 内华达 Arts Council 民俗 Specialist Rebecca Snetselaar. Family herit年龄 — national or ethnic — often informs a person’s sense of self. Cultural identity also may derive from langu年龄, 性别, 宗教, 年龄, 占领, and sense of place. Culture is something we share with others in a social group. It’s our folklife: our common values and beliefs, the creative ways we express identity in a group, the knowledge we share, the objects that hold significance and meaning, the activities we eng年龄 in as a community.
“Find Your 民俗: We Are ‘the Folk,“拉菲2手机版游戏平台所有人,” can be seen at the 内华达 State Museum, 拉斯维加斯, 309 S. Valley View Blvd. in 拉斯维加斯 (on the Springs Preserve campus). The museum is open from 9 a.m. 4 p.m. Friday through Monday. For museum info and ticket information, visit LasVegasNVMuseum.org.
