It’s an immortal symbol of optimism and good times. It’s the ultimate selfie spot. It’s known throughout the world as an identifier of this city. And now, the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign is getting a new treatment.
On October 2, Helios Fine Art at Art Square will debut a group show called The Sign. Similar to group shows in which artists all use a skateboard or snowboard deck as a canvas, this one will feature a 4-foot-by-2-foot plywood sign in that diamond-and-circle shape of the famed Las Vegas sign.
“The shutdown has really impacted the Las Vegas arts community in a drastic way,” Helios owner David Petrides said in a press statement. “I wanted to kickstart the fall season with a project that was fun and totally unique.”
The show features 120 local artists, including Mark Kaufman, Maddi Godard, D.A. Soto and Core Contemporary Gallery’s Nancy Good.
The Sign runs through October 30 at Helios Fine Art, 1025 1st St. #140.
