“Our Las Vegas” is a cultural animation public art project that celebrates the fierce and passionate connection that local and out-of-town artists, fiction writers, photographers, musicians, journalists, dancers, designers and other creatives make with “The Radiant City.”
Conceived as an online public art work, commissioned by the Las Vegas Arts Commission, “Our Las Vegas” launched on May 1, 2012 as a mobile web app. Arts Commission support continued through November 2014. DowntownProject provided additional support in 2013 and 2014.
In November 2012 we opened an exhibition | photography | video-audio post-production studio [and office] space downtown at Emergency Arts, 520 Fremont Street. [map] “Our Las Vegas” now takes multiple forms, with community participation highlighted and encouraged.
“The Daily Frame,” is the signature element of an integral photographic element of the overall project. Contributing photographers include: Sallie Douglas; Glenn Elliott; Andrea Lipomi; Ellie Mendré; JOn Miller; Pam Stuckey; and Adam Yurkunas.
“Our Las Vegas” is also delighted to work with students and alumni of Professor Mary Hausch‘s classes in the UNLV Hank Greenspun School of Journalism & Media Studies
