"ILB" (documentation from the “Undone” performance project) by Wendy Kveck.
"Tilting The Basin" at the Nevada Museum of Art continues the needed conversation of how contemporary art created in Nevada differ when it comes out from the upper and lower regions of the state. KNPR talks with exhibition curators JoAnne Northrup and Michele Quinn on what they found from those committed to be known as national artists . . . who happen to be from Nevada. That's a shared goal. What makes the two art fronts different is also compelling. The broadcasted interview is now up at KNPR.

A landmark mural in Downtown Los Angeles was whitewashed in 2006. A new version will soon be going up in LA's Arts District. It's not a Las Vegas story, but I am pleased to pass on a link to my post at Hyperallergic.
