Las Vegas Art Museum Is Closing
It looks like art will be increasingly hard to find in Las Vegas. I wrote last April about the closing of the Guggenheim Hermitage Museum in the Venetian. Now the Las Vegas Sun reports that the Las Vegas Art Museum is closing its doors. The museum will close on February 28th. It will keep its name and remain an entity with the hope of opening up its doors again in better times. Like many other museums, the LVAM has been suffering from a lack of donations. The museum cut spending and jobs less than three months ago in an effort to keep the museum viable. The museum began 59 years ago as an art league and became a fine art museum in 1974. It specializes in contemporary art and is currently showing an exhibit featuring 20 emerging artists who live and work in Los Angeles, California.
