Rick Silva: Western Fronts

Study Gallery

Silva’s work integrates art and technology and poses questions about politics and place. As a response to the Trump administration's decision to strip land from four major national monuments – Cascade Siskiyou in Oregon, California, Gold Butte in Nevada, and Grand Staircase-Escalante, and Bears Ears in Utah - Silva sought out to critically examine the effects of the presidential declaration.
