About the artists

Checko Salgado is a professional photographer, educator, arts advocate, and conservationist. His recent work focuses on promoting and preserving his home state’s natural and cultural resources through organizing and curating art exhibitions in cooperation with fellow artists, conservation groups, national agencies, and elected officials. Salgado has curated The Basin & Range Exhibition, Home Means Nevada, MONUMENTS, and Valley of Faces, among others. He recently collaborated with fellow artists Kim Means and Mikayla Whitmore to co-curate Spirit of the Land, an exhibition focusing on Avi Kwa Ame, Nevada’s fourth proposed national monument. Salgado is currently filming with Paula Jacoby-Garrett and Julian Kilker on “The Last Shepard,” a documentary focusing on Basque sheepherders at the Basin & Range National Monument.

Mikayla Whitmore is an artist and photojournalist working within the vast realms of photography, sculpture, and mixed media. In conversation with landscape and community, they utilize concepts of space & existentialism to convey their observations with the romanticization of the West, queer experience, and the appreciation of the sublime in the often mundane. Growing up in Las Vegas, and after obtaining their BFA in Photography from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 2010, they exhibited work nationally and internationally. A recent project includes “Live in America,” the Performing Arts Festival at the Momentary Museum in Bentonville, Arkansas. Their work can be found in various media, including The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, The Wall Street Journal, ESPN, and High Country News. Pronouns: they/them/she.
