Moving Murals: Works bring energy of skate parks to Barrick Museum of Art

Artist Andrew Schoultz goes from outside to inside with “In Process: Every Movement Counts,” a museum-wide installation at UNLV’s Barrick Museum of Art, June 2-Sept. 15.

The Los Angeles-based artist recently collaborated with the museum — and Clark County’s Winchester Cultural Center — to transform the center’s community skate park, replacing blank concrete with colorful stars, arcs, eyes and other imagery.

At the Barrick, Schoultz’s murals bring the dynamic energy of streets and skate parks into a museum setting, along with images and ideas from illuminated manuscripts, ancient cartography and Persian miniatures — in the process echoing some of the skate park’s visual motifs.
