Romantic images of cowboys and covered wagons, railroad barons and Gold Rush-era prospectors that typically depict the settling of the American West play only supporting roles in a Nevada art exhibit with a broader perspective on Earth's "final frontier".The 762-square-meter exhibition is divided into five themes: Shifting Ground, Colliding Cultures, Colonizing Resources, The Sublime Open and Experimental Diversity.Two hundred works by the likes of Ruscha, Ansel Adams, Paul Kos, Federico Herrero, Georgia O'Keefe and 75 others reverberate one or more meanings of "unsettled," including lacking stability, worried and uneasy, and having no settlers or inhabitants – the latter with a special twist.Other works on display by Ruscha include his iconic "Chocolate Room," a room literally made of sweet-smelling chocolate shingles.Ruscha said during a recent lecture at the museum kicking off the exhibit that he came up with the idea at a London workshop where he was making silk-screen prints and etchings using alternative materials like axel grease, maple syrup, caviar and cream.
