first friday in August...
The first friday of the month - Vegas style! Burlesque, showgirls, painted murals and painted people, ice cream (of course) and even a pirate or two. Top left is Yinzie Steel at the Burlesque Hall of Fame which currently has lots of photographs and information on the history of burlesque in Las Vegas. Top right are showgirl works by Karen Jaikowski, a new artist at The Arts Factory. Center are wall works underway by Damien Drake (left) on the Sin City Gallery wall and Juan Muniz in the CAC window, both which were completed for first friday.
Adding to the diversity of studios and galleries in the 18b Arts District is Skin City Body Painting which opened this month at 1209 S Main St. The ice cream truck (bottom right) is parked up at the new street closure area - First Friday South.
