Growing up in California during the 50’s and 60’s Greg Miller was steeped in the pop culture of mid-century Americana. Miller draws from a time when advertising and text became encrypted into our experience of everyday life, when life as “advertised” and life as “lived” became intertwined for rural and urban dwellers alike. His images are saturated with hidden messages inviting the viewer to delver deep into his pieces, and into their own perceptions and nostalgia of the era.

Coinciding with renewed dialogue about the possibility of breaching dams throughout the Columbia River Basin, this BIG IDEA project offers a conversation about the impact of dams on Idaho and the American West. For more than a century, dams have shaped Idaho’s landscapes, ecosystems and economies. At this historic moment, the project considers the history of damming in the Pacific Northwest, the effects of dams on the region, and a reimagined future for rivers and the life dependent on them in the American West. SVMoA has commissioned artists Carolina Caycedo, Eirik Johnson, James Prosek and Rachel Teannalach to create new work for the exhibition, including immersive installations.

On the rodeo circuit and in the ring, Steve Wrubel captures those fleeting moments that appear as a blur from the sidelines. Wrubel’s photography isolates his subjects from the chaotic scene that is the rodeo and inserts them into remote landscapes. This brings into sharp focus the dance between rider and animal, harking back to an earlier time in the American west.
