Downtown Las Vegas will be on display during the “Decade” exhibit that begins Jan. 7, at the Historic Fifth Street School Gallery, located at 401 S. Fourth St. The exhibit will feature a collection of photographs documenting the last 10 years of change in downtown Las Vegas – buildings being torn down and rebuilt. The exhibit runs through March 13 and is available for view by appointment only. A reception, which is open to the public, will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 12, inside the gallery.
The exhibit will feature works by artists Catherine Borg, Clay Heximer
and Joel Rosales. Borg is a visual artist working across multiple mediums utilizing video, audio, photography, drawing and sculpture in her work. Heximer is a native Las Vegan who likes to take photos and play the drums in a rock ‘n’ roll band. Rosales is a Las Vegas native who is captivated with the unique and ever changing history of the city. He is fascinated with the once beautiful but now abandoned and forgotten architecture and sites around Southern Nevada. His photographs are a study in art, history and the loss of both in this ever-changing city.
