The Contemporary Arts Center announces selection for 22nd Annual Juried Show...

The highly anticipated yearly juried show put on by the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) should bring yet again an amazing selection of artists to the hallowed grounds of the Arts Factory. For 22 years the little organization "that could" has brought to Las Vegas contemporary works that have left their audiences wanting for more. So I am sure this year will not be any different and by looking at the line-up of artists I do not believe we will be disappointed.

Congratulations to the CAC for 22 awesome years!
