Free Art Supplies: Fremont Street Renovation Leads to Art Opportunity

The Fremont Street Experience will be upgrading its overhead canopy, replacing the currently used light bulbs with LED modules. The City of Las Vegas Arts Commission is working with the Experience in making available the old bulbs to be included in works of art in its Fremont Street Experience "Unplugged" program.

From the site... "...the lights must remain the major emphasis of the piece and up to 40,000 bulbs may be included in each proposed design. Although not a requirement of the proposed artwork, many of the light bulbs are capable of being energized, providing artists the option of illuminating their designs."

The design requirements and other information are both on the web site and in the available downloadable PDF brochure provided. The deadline for proposal submissions is 5 p.m, March 31, 2004.
