Since this month the First Friday is also The FIRST OF THE MONTH, it kind of crept up on me.
The whole schedule, including shuttle stops and everything else is available at the First Friday website.
Of Special Interest To Jack LeVine will be:
Cirque du Soleil will showcase the creative talents of its employees in its 4th Annual ‘The Collective’ exhibit in the Arts Factory.
In addition, the Cirque du Soleil Community Support Grants for the Visual & Performing Arts will be awarded.
Jack LeVine’s friend Kenton Aemmerson, who’s Cirque du Soleil Cultural Action Coordinator, says “In our ever expanding community of Las Vegas, the need for cultural awakening and growth is a constant vital necessity. Cirque du Soleil creates many links with people active in the artistic communities of Las Vegas. The participation in the First Friday arts festival is one way Cirque du Soleil has been committed to support and assist emerging artists and art organizations. The company also strives to support its many employees who have an artistic practice besides their current position at Cirque du Soleil. ”
