Tinker Bell will bleed bling when struck down. That is the take-away in this new piece by ThereSheIsArt. The Disnified version of J. M. Barrie's fairy diva is face down, laying in pool of her own glitter in an Arts District gutter. The details in the colors feel worn and stressed, accented by the wisp of light blue, and the gold against the hard concrete is striking. The iconic figure is in need of quick help (or maybe it is too late). I choose this to be a metaphor of how the witty and smart street art of Las Vegas has been on a low ebb, or abandoned. This brings it back, for a moment, if you clap your hands.
