Bringing the heart, soul and culture of Las Vegas into the fore with a dual exhibition dubbed “Our Las Vegas,” the Las Vegas City Hall is putting forward a unique view of Las Vegas, one not obscured by the bright lights and glare radiating from The Strip. With a fusion of art, style, and local culture that reaches back across the decades, the exhibition promises to enthrall locals and visitors alike.
There’s Vegas — the 24-7 spree that tourists see.
There’s Las Vegas — where those of us who live here spend our waking, and sleeping, hours.
But in “Our Las Vegas,” a variety of local artists share their visions of everything from Glitter Gulch’s trademark neon to a party-hearty Rat Pack very different from the one we know and love.
The dual exhibition represents the first physical manifestation of an online project that launched in May 2012, according to “Our Las Vegas” director Jon Winet.
