Commissioner Tick SegerBlom and the Clark County Parks & Recreation Public Arts Office invite you to the dedication of "Spin Baby" by Wayne Littlejohn. Light refreshments will be served during the ceremony on Thursday, Jan. 16 at 8:30 am. The sculpture is located on the corner at the intersection of Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Frank Sinatra drives. Parking is available at the Caesars Colosseum parking garage off Frank Sinatra Drive and Jay Sarno Way and is subject to Caesars Palace parking fees.
Spin Baby is a 15-foot-tall, spiraling public art sculpture that celebrates the amazing entertainers of Las Vegas, past and present. "While this monumental sculpture, 'Spin Baby,' celebrates the current moment, it wholly embraces the mid-century flavor of old Vegas, too," Littlejohn said. "I wanted to celebrate the amazing entertainers of Las Vegas, past and present, with a focus on the significance of the human voice."
"The County reunited the Rat Pack when Sammy Davis Drive, formerly Industrial Road, was dedicated four years ago, connecting it to Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin drives," said Commissioner SegerBlom, who represents this area. "This corner is an important one, seeing about 20,000 vehicles pass by it daily, and that will continue to grow with tourism and the opening of Allegiant Stadium and properties such as Resorts World. The crossroads of the Rat Pack is deserving of its own public art, further growing a collection of locally created, world-class art in Las Vegas."
