On Thursday, Sept. 26 from 5 to 6:30 p.m., Clark County Parks and Recreation will present the four artists selected for ZAP 12 Public Art on Mt. Charleston, during a public meet-and-greet hosted at the Mt. Charleston Lodge. During the event, the Zap 12 artists Brenda Talley, Jorge Ceja (Vezun), Clint Brill and Aniko Doman will be introduced and discuss their proposed designs. Residents and Zap! enthusiasts can learn more about the proposed works, talk to the artists and provide feedback on artwork design ideas to be completed on Mt. Charleston in October and November 2019.
The event on Thursday, Sept. 26, will be held at the Mt. Charleston Lodge, located at 5375 Kyle Canyon Rd., Las Vegas, NV 89124. Note that this location is at the top end of Kyle Canyon Road (Hwy 157) on Mt. Charleston.
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 Clark County. Zap 12 will be the second ZAP! project to be produced outside of the Las Vegas Valley, along with Zap 8, which brought this utility box art series to Laughlin in 2016.
In addition to Clark County's regular Zap! partners, the Las Vegas Valley Water District and NV Energy, other partnering stakeholders collaborating with Clark County Parks and Recreation's Public Art Program are the US Forest Service, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, the Mt. Charleston Library, the Mt. Charleston Lodge, the Mt. Charleston Town Advisory Board, the Nevada Department of Transportation and Clark County Commissioner Larry Brown, who represents the area.
A second open house will be held in November after the boxes are finished to celebrate the completion, officially unveiling ZAP! 12 to the public.
