A new era of architecture and hope opens this Friday in Symphony Park...

Finally after years of anticipation the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health opens the Gehry Life Activity Center. For anyone who lives, works and plays downtown we have patiently watched in amazement as world renowned architect Frank Gehry's latest creation rose from the ashes of the historic rail yards in Downtown. This wonderful project is a game changer for Las Vegas not just in terms of architecture but also in hope for those who have lost loved ones to Alzheimer's, ALS and other brain related disorders.

The new landmark opens this Friday to the world. The historic event will be celebrated with a balloon release and speeches by Nevada leaders. The event will take place on May 21 at 10 am.

The Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health is located at 888 Bonneville Avenue at Grand Central Parkway.
