Painting is titled “Toh nikya:w: Big Water,” and is hanging in the Hoopa Valley Tribe’s Administration Building. This painting was donated to the Hoopa Valley Tribe as a way to say thank you for the settlement negotiations which benefited the membership.
These photographs capture a few scenes of what I’ve been able to view so far. First off two photos are of the Las Vegas Arts District, named “18 b,” which stands for the number of blocks encompassing the area. It’s great the city designated a specific art area of Vegas as its own separate “art district.”
I’ve also got a few photos inside the Cosmopolitan Hotel which has an obvious artistic bent and the in-room books on the bed stands were on the topic of art (of course). I’ve also got a few shots inside the well-known Pawn Shop featured on the television program “Pawn Stars.” I thought it would be interesting to see what kind of pieces they would buy or consider art of value.
Also, I was able to see the ongoing Andy Warhol exhibit “Out West,” which features a number of his most famous pieces. This last picture of the Chanel flower created painting is in the Bellagio Hotel in LV. It’s inspired by Warhol’s style as you can see.
Well Vegas has a lot to show…
One thought on “The Las Vegas, Nevada Art Scene and Painting in the Hoopa Valley Tribal Office”
There’s certainly a great deal to know about this topic.
I really like all the points you have made.
