FIELD NOTE: “Yes, Crazy Girls statuary being moved to another location,” reports Stephen P Grogan, the local author who doubles as City of Las Vegas Art Commissioner President. He sent the news through his Facebook feed along with a “The show must go on!”...The end is nigh: The bronze of showgirls are posed in front of the 60-year-old Riviera hotel, which will be closing its doors at noon today. Casino hype claimed this was the most photographed sculpture in Las Vegas. Judging by the strategic volunteer polishing it can be said this is one of the most interactive bronzes in Nevada.
