2012... The Year of the Dragon & artists are celebrating...

With Chinese New Year just two weeks away Las Vegas is set to roll out the red and gold carpet for our friends from across the Pacific. Hey lets face it, China is a waking dragon ready to leave its mark anywhere it goes. Whether its buying commodities from South America, Buicks from the USA, and yes they love Buick's, or beating Las Vegas at its own game the Chinese are definitely making an impact. Here in Las Vegas the resorts go all out, decking out their properties with beautiful decorations in celebration of this important Asian holiday. 

Las Vegas is well aware of the importance of making our friends around the world feel very welcome. Even local artists are jumping at the opportunity to celebrate with the Chinese. One of Las Vegas most important figurative artists, Suzanne Forestieri, will be featured at Dragon - the exhibition that opens on Thursday, January 12 at the Historic 5th Street School. The exhibition celebrates the Year of the Dragon in style at one of Las Vegas' most historic buildings. 

The opening reception will be Thursday at 5:30 p.m. 
The Historic 5th Street School
