Third Friday for those who just need more art...

Last month was the inauguration of Third Fridays in 18b. Another evening filed with arts and culture in Las Vegas' growing and expanding Downtown scene. Tonight is the second installment of the fun filled evening with lots of opened galleries and a smattering of musical and art performances to enjoy. Though not directly related to the much bigger festival First Friday, the concept behind Third Friday is no different. The goal is to get the public to come Downtown to appreciate and participate in Las Vegas' growing arts renaissance.

The festivities begin around 6pm and continue into the evening.
