Las Vegas has a Mayor, Carolyn Goodman, since 2011! She has succeeded her husband Oscar (deceased) and pursues progressive policies. Public transit is well developed, among other things.
An iconic view of Las Vegas, facing the Fremont Experience
I went there for a writer’s workshop. However, I discovered other less known and very positive aspects.
This week, I open with murals. In every city I visit, I try to capture the mural art. And Las Vegas has some amazing art.
This is behind the restaurant Vegenation, which I will talk about soon.
A mural that animates a sad parking lot! Near 6th Avenue
Another colorful mural, surrounding the same parking lot.
The Astronaut and Unicorn hidden mural, visible from a back alley!
Here, a very well sponsorised giant mural
A well-thought illusion featuring a place long gone.
A museum mural. Wheter the red splurt was designed or not to symbolize the fragility of wild life reminds to be seen.
Some very unconventional murals surprizes the visitors!
This young pinkish girl seems to mock us!
Another rebel graffiti. The woman’s face extends below on the asphalt, a mark of the artist’s craft. The other graffiti artists have (for the most part) respected this image!
You can guess the hope and apprehension in this man’s eyes. (My other angle without the post was too sun-drenched to show.)
This dignified face may be a publicity stunt, but the Fear no Fate text looks like Fear no Hate, all in all a good message for me.
As a science fiction writer I can’t ignore that one.
That dreamy mermaid closes this review.
