The New Downtown Post Office Museum to Have New Show

The City's Department of Leisure Services has announced the first show for the "Post Modern", the reclaimed historic post office near city hall.
So, here it goes. . .

Department of Leisure Services
The Cultural Division cordially invites you to attend several First Friday events on May, 6, 2005.

Starting off the evening will be the Post Modern reception for the VEGAS VIP (Vegas Viewed in Post Cards) exhibit from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the former downtown Post Office on 301 Stewart. Self guided tours will begin at 5:30 through 9:00 pm. Gallery Volunteers will be on-site to help with questions.

The second event occurring at the Post Modern will be performances by award winning Collage Dance Theatre ensemble, a site-specific performance dance company that serves up visions of the past with more than a pinch of surrealism. Performances are at 7:00 pm, 7:45 pm, 8:30 pm, and at 9:15 pm. For more information regarding the Collage Dance Theatre please go to their web site at: Collage Dance Theatre.

Two special Post Modern Express buses will be transporting guests to and from the Post Modern Exhibit and Collage performances and the First Friday Arts District activities every 15 minutes. Paid parking is also available at the Stewart Parking structure on 4th and Stewart entrance (north bound traffic) and on Las Vegas Boulevard South and Stewart (south bound traffic).

In addition to the Post Modern VEGAS VIP and the Collage Dance Theatre, the May First Friday activities will be celebrating a Centennial First Friday: "100 Years 100 Artists. First Friday will host participating fine artists on First Friday from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm and on Saturday, May 7 from 10 am to 5:00 pm.
