As a city that never sleeps, there are so many ways of framing the incredible and renowned metropolis we get to call home. These drawings, paintings, and photographs give us unique perspectives on Las Vegas, whether a commentary on life in the fast lane or an artistic appreciation for our colorful skyline. The 14 artists shown here share their visions and memories through unfiltered lenses.
“Las Vegas and its residents have been through a lot in the past year,” said Commissioner Segerblom. “The artworks in this show remind me of the reasons I love living here. They give the city life, translating its heartbeat into real visual delights.”
This exhibition has been juried by Joseph Watson, a local narrative painter, and illustrator with over a decade of experience in the Las Vegas Arts District.
Selected artists include Jenny Baham, Dan Brady, Zoe Camper, Lanelle Christman, Ken Flanagan, Cynthia Hamika, Lee Lanier, Ann Lippert, Chelsea Rust, Murbina, Ozzy Villate, Joseph Watson, Yej, and Susan Z.
