The Office of Arts & Culture and the Sustainability Council Present Murals Promoting Sustainability at Raker Student Success Center

 



The Office of Arts & Culture is excited to unveil the first of a series of outdoor murals. “Earth Day Every Day” by Mila May and “The Flow of Change” by Valentin Yordanov were commissioned in a collaboration with Nevada State’s Sustainability Council. This project is part of The Artist at Work series and an official arts offering related to Nevada State’s Common Read, Tales of Two Planets: Stories of Climate Change and Inequality in a Divided World, edited by John Freeman.

 

We invite you to celebrate these murals by sharing our photos and your own of the work, but please tag us @NevadaStateArts and tag the artists.


 

Mila May is an established Las Vegas artist whose work includes murals, graphic design, illustration, and installation. She specializes in clean graphic style using bright colors, bold shapes and subtle texture. Most of the time she can be found working in her studio where she uses both digital and traditional media; otherwise she is traveling, hiking and exploring near and far, looking for inspiration. Mila is interested in public art and wants to give everyone a chance to experience positive messages through art.  IG: @greenmorning.art/

 


Valentin Yordanov was born in 1986 in Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria. For more than a decade, Valentin Yordanov has been an artist in residence in beautiful Las Vegas. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Bulgaria, and then was awarded a scholarship to pursue his M.F.A. at the Bucharest National Academy of Arts, Romania. His studies included intensive drawing trips and major exhibitions around Europe, including Vienna and Budapest. After completing his education, this urban explorer was on his way to enlarging his mental maps, discovering the new world, and setting up his studio in Las Vegas.  IG:@valentinyordanov_/

The Artist at Work series seeks to engage the campus and community in conversations about topics like what art-making as work looks like, the role of the artist in the workforce, STEAM initiatives, the arts as advocacy, and the arts as a driver of economic development and tourism. 

 

The mission of the Office of Arts & Culture is to enhance living and learning through arts and culture on campus and in the community.
