Clark County will host a 1 October Anniversary Exhibit from Monday, Sept. 27, through Thursday, Oct. 7, in the Rotunda Gallery, located on the first floor of the Clark County Government Center, 500 S. Grand Central Parkway in downtown Las Vegas. The Government Center is open Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The Rotunda will be open on Friday, Oct. 1, until noon following the Sunrise Remembrance ceremony taking place in the outdoor amphitheater at 7 a.m. Staff from the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center will be present in the Rotunda following the remembrance ceremony.  
The exhibit, organized by Clark County's Parks and Recreation Department, will feature a display of quilts donated to the Resiliency Center for this year's quilt raffle for 1 October survivors, family members who lost loved ones and first responders. 
There will be a display to inform the public of the ongoing work of Clark County's 1 October Memorial Committee, which was established by the Clark County Commission to gather input to build a permanent memorial in the Las Vegas Valley that remembers those who perished in the attack, honors survivors, first responders and all those affected by the incident, and celebrates the resiliency of our community. 
The Art of Healing Murals created by local artists to commemorate the first anniversary of 1 October in 2018 also will be on display in addition to the Angels of Love exhibit, which contains glass angels in remembrance of the lives lost and the hundreds of people wounded as well as memorabilia to honor law enforcement and agencies that responded to the attack. The exhibit was given to Clark County by the Angels of Love organization of Orange County, Calif., for the first anniversary of the Route 91 shooting.
