We attended the opening reception on Thursday at the the newly relocated Southern Nevada Museum Of Fine Art. It’s now on the 2nd floor of Neonopolis at the entry to the Fremont Street Experience.
The gallery space is enourmous and friendly, but the highlight will be the dozens of artist work spaces. All of them are now rented and the artists will be taking occupancy soon.
What was once the food court is now another fine addition to the evergrowing downtown arts scene.
There’s big changes happening at Neonopis. Telemundo will have a broadcast studio, several new restaurants, 2 or 3 of the movie theatres are being transformed into performing arts space.
Joe Palermo, the executive director of the non-profit organization told me that the goal is to create an entire complex of art entertainment, theatre, and fine dining. So far, they’re off to a great start.
Make a point to stop in. Once all the various artist tenants are working it should be an exciting experience everytime you visit.
