Another local hotel gets into the arts act...

Well its no surprise that over the last decade or so more and more hotels around the city are embracing the visual arts to encourage people to visit their establishments and to demonstrate that Las Vegas really has an art scene. Steve Wynn did it with his fantastical art collection at his hotels, City Center with their amazing sculpture collection and the Cosmopolitan with their fabulous collections and artist-in-residency program. Therefore it was a natural for another local hotel to get into the act. SpringHill Suites, a small hotel located on Paradise Road across the street from the Las Vegas Convention Center, has teamed up with local non-profit Think & Wonder Inc. to showcase a collection of local and student artists from UNLV, the College of Southern Nevada and the Clark County School District. This evenings reception will also feature live music by Herbert Rawlings and Dennis Mellen.

The Black, White & Night art reception will begin at 4:30 PM and continue through 8 PM. So if you have a moment make sure to go down to the hotel and support a non-profit trying to make a positive change in this Radiant City we call home.
