The Historic Westside will soon be the recipient of more large-scale murals, thanks to the city of Las Vegas, the Mayor’s Fund for Las Vegas Life and local artist Chase McCurdy. The mural project was the idea of one of the board members of the Mayor’s Fund, which is the philanthropic arm for the city of Las Vegas.
After conducting a competitive process, Chase McCurdy, a local artist with deep roots in the Las Vegas art community and someone with ties to the Historic Westside, was selected to lead the effort. McCurdy has held two meetings in his gallery to gather input from the community. An email address also has been set up so anyone can write in with ideas and concepts for the murals. It’s estimated the entire project will be completed by June 2023.
The first mural project is underway at the West Las Vegas Arts Center, continuing the mural wall located at the east end of Kianga Isoke Palacio Park at Doolittle Complex. Three artists, Darvianna Major, Landry Randriamandroso and Michelle Graves, are working on murals that are expected to be complete by the end of January 2023.
Another mural project is in the works at OBODO collective, located at 1300 C St.
Please email Murals@LasVegasNevada.gov with any questions about the project, or with any ideas on additional mural locations.
