"I used to believe that art could exist for art’s sake. But after many discussions with a friend who believed that art needed to be concept based in order to relevant to our society, I began to question my voice and the relevancy of my own artistic practice." Linda Alterwitz at Arts Las Vegas.

Chuckle if you want, the "World's Tallest Thermometer" has a fan base. It was re-lit last week and went to grab some photos. LaRae Harguess, daughter of Therometer creator, Willis Herron, was there, which led to a nice little story at KCET. In part I wrote:
"The 134-foot heat gauge began to be neglected and grew a reputation of giving the wrong temperature, or not give one at all. The lights went out when the last owner wasn't able to afford it. But people were still taking photos next to the tower, said Harguess, as her mother saw one day when visiting the tower. "Mom was devastated how terrible it looked. One day she walked up to people taking photos and said 'I promise you if we ever get it back, it will go back on.'"
The 2014 Las Vegas Film Festival shifts its screenings to Fremont East in downtown Las Vegas, a move that allows new title sponsor, Zappos.com, to have the festival join the "neighborhood culture of arts and technology" according to the press release. LVFF expands to 5 days, from July 30 through August 3, with 70 film screenings from strong programming under the direction of West McDowell, LVFF. "It was a dream to be downtown," said West. Frankly, after seeing last year's festival, LVFF adds it's own cool factor.
