Las Vegas Arts Commission Dedication Wednesday April 9th In Downtown Las Vegas

Thank you to Brian Paco Alvarez for sending us this information!  As you can see, it’s based on one of Jack’s favorite obsessions, decorative block. There’s lots more of them on our old blog.
Please join us for the dedication of Ornamental, a public artwork by Catherine Borg on Wednesday, April 9th.
Ornamental is a project by the City of Las Vegas Arts Commission percent for the arts program.

The patterns incorporated in ornamental are based on photographs by the artist documenting brick walls in older Las Vegas neighborhoods.  Reduced from the photographic to essential patterns and presented on a mirrored material, the intent of this project is to suggest connection among all downtown dwellers, old and new.
