Jim Denevan will be be in attendance at the Nevada Museum of Art's upcoming screening of Art Hard.
Land artist Jim Denevan—the creative force behind Outstanding in the Field—traveled thousands of miles to make an enormous drawing on the frozen surface of the world's largest lake, Siberia's Lake Baikal. Enduring sub-zero temperatures and blistering winds, five participants inscribed the ice with a series of circles based on the Fibonacci sequence to create what has been called the world's largest drawing. Art Hard documents the creation of this monumental drawing. Special guest appearance by the artist.
