RENO, NV.- David B. Walker, CEO of the Nevada Museum of Art, today announced that the Museum has acquired four monumental earthen figures of varying size created by Rose B. Simpson for her current exhibition at the Museum, Rose B. Simpson: The Four. An artist who comes from the Santa Clara Pueblo, known for its celebrated ceramics tradition in production since the 6th century CE, Simpson witnessed her mother’s practice from a young age. She creates utilitarian ceramic figures who work towards the transformation of our collective human society. The Four represents by far the most ambitious suite of clay figures made by Simpson to date. The exhibition, made possible with support from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Six Talents Foundation, will remain on view at the Nevada Museum of Art through April 3, 2022.

David B. Walker said, “Rose B. Simpson is fast becoming one of the most sought-after artists of her generation and has already proven herself to be among the most compelling. We’re proud that she has a major presence, in multiple roles, in this year’s Art + Environment Season, and we are thrilled to have acquired the extraordinary ensemble of sculptures she created as The Four. We also gratefully acknowledge The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and The Six Talents Foundation for their generous support in helping make this exhibition possible.”

The Four is one of five exhibitions the Museum is presenting in its 2021 Art + Environment Season, Land Art: Past, Present, Futures. The season also encompasses 12 virtual discussions and talks by 23 distinguished speakers (September 23 through November 19), including Simpson’s presentation Clay, Place, and Cultural Survival on Thursday, November 18. For more information on subscribing to the 2021 A + E Season, visit In addition to the Season presentations, subscribers will receive the 256-page, lavishly illustrated book, Gianfranco Gorgoni: Land Art Photographs published by the Museum and Monacelli, which also features an essay by the late Germano Celant.

Rose B. Simpson (b. 1983, Santa Clara Pueblo, NM) has a BFA from the Institute of American Indian Arts, an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, and an MA in Creative Writing from the Institute of American Indian Arts. Solo exhibitions of her work have been mounted at Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian, Santa Fe, NM; Pomona College Museum of Art in Claremont, CA; and Colorado State University, Fort Collins. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Denver Art Museum; Museum of Fine Arts Boston; Portland Art Museum; Princeton University Art Museum; and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Simpson lives and works at the Santa Clara Pueblo, New Mexico.

The Nevada Museum of Art has a long history of engagement and collaboration with Indigenous artists of Nevada and is home to the Great Basin Native Artist Archives. The acquisition of Indigenous art is a key focus of the Museum’s Dorothy S. and Robert J. Keyser Art of the Greater West Collection.
