Artists Selected for ZAP 10 on East Cheyenne
Open House to Meet Artists & Discuss Designs on April 19th.
Clark County’s Zap! program is bringing public art to east Cheyenne. On Thursday, April 19th, from 5:30 – 7:30pm, the community is invited to meet the recently chosen artists, learn more about the proposed works and provide feedback, at Walnut Recreation Center, 3075 N Walnut Rd, 89115. This informational open house is free.
In April, after gathering public feedback from the initial open house, 10 local artists, selected by an independent review panel, will design original artwork and submit their final designs.
In May and June, after their final designs have been approved, Zap 10 artists will bring their original designs to life on 38 designated public utility boxes along East Cheyenne Ave, from the Las Vegas Wash Regional Trail Park, to Lamb Blvd, and around Walnut Recreation Center and Park (just south of Cheyenne Ave.) After artists are finished with the creations, a second open house will be held at Walnut Recreation Center to celebrate the completion of Zap 10.
Initiated in 2005 by Clark County Parks and Recreation in the Winchester Neighborhood, the Zap Public Art Series has become a vehicle for bringing public art to neighborhoods throughout the Las Vegas Valley and beyond. In recent years the popularity of Zap! has spread to other municipalities and organizations in southern Nevada, who have embarked on their own utility box public art projects.
