A Look Into “The New Vanguard” at the Lancaster Museum of Art and History

Lancaster MOAH The New Vanguard

“The New Vanguard” opened at the Lancaster Museum of Art and History in tandem with POW! WOW! Antelope Valley to a vibrant reception on August 12th. The exhibition features over 55 artists from the new contemporary movement with a solo presentation by Scott Listfield in the Vault Gallery, and site-specific murals and installations created by Alex Yanes, Bumblebeelovesyou, Meggs, and Yoskay Yamamoto.  We’re thrilled to have been welcomed into the walls of the MOAH and are excited for the future of the new contemporary movement. Please visit the Thinkspace Gallery website for more information on the exhibition and to view available works.

“The New Vanguard” and POW! WOW! Antelope Valley murals can be viewed now through October 30th.

The Lancaster Museum of Art and History is dedicated to strengthening awareness, enhancing accessibility and igniting the appreciation of art, history and culture in the Antelope Valley through dynamic exhibitions, innovative educational programs, creative community engagement and a vibrant collection that celebrates the richness of the region.
