18b, The Las Vegas Arts District
The name, "18b," represents the original Arts District area, which consisted of 18 blocks. Today, the Arts District area has grown beyond those original 18 blocks and is a classic urban mix of residential, commercial and cultural uses that will continue to grow as the hub of the arts scene in Las Vegas.
On the first Friday of each month, an arts and cultural event is held in the district. The "First Friday" festival draws up to 20,000 visitors into the neighborhood. This event encourages people to flock downtown to browse, buy, eat, drink and mingle. The event is a festive environment with food and beverage vendors, music, visual performances and artists displaying their works.
18b, The Las Vegas Arts District, will be introducing a speaker series featuring local creative professionals in and around the Arts District and the Las Vegas Valley. The presenters for the inaugural event featuring the Pioneers of the Arts District are: Lisa Stamanis, Eric Strain, Richard Hooker, Michael Wardle, Ginger Bruner and Jerry Misko James.
