The “18b” in Las Vegas, Nevada, is just a short walk or bus ride from Fremont Street. Also known as the Las Vegas Arts District, the “18b,” represents the original Arts District area, which consisted of 18 blocks.
Many international street artists are drawn to the area and the organizers of the “Life is Beautiful” festival held in Downtown Las Vegas, promotes street art by commissioning works for the event.
Included in this virtual tour are pieces by Aware AS, Ana Marietta, Bicicleta Sem Freio and Milk the Bunny. However, it’s been sitting in “draft” mode on Roundme for almost a year now as I awaited to identify some of the artists whose work can be found here.
I think by now the art work in the area may have already changed as street art is so ephemeral. So I’m publishing it today with the hopes that visitors to this blog can help me identify those pieces. Please leave a comment if you know!
