Conceived to raise awareness and funds for the Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Southern Nevada, ARTrageous Vegas! brings together the wider Las Vegas arts community for a night of creative diversity. This year the event was held at the new Cosmospolitan with plenty of space for a fashion show, a juried art exhibition, a photography studio and several smaller salons featuring burlesque, body-painting and music.
There was so much to experience in the short space of an evening, that these photos give only a tiny taste. Many talented individuals and queer-friendly businesses provided donations and sponsorship to create what was widely considered a very enjoyable and successful event. Art exhibition judges awarded the top prize to the collective Three Bad Sheep and exhibiting artists donated half of all sales to the Center.
