On Dec. 2, 2009, the Las Vegas City Council approved to move forward with the financing of a new City Hall, a project that will boost the economy through job creation as part of the city’s economic stimulus plan. The new City Hall opened to the public March 2012.
The new City Hall is located downtown between First and Main Streets and Lewis and Clark Avenues, is two blocks south of the Golden Nugget hotel-casino. It is also near a new downtown transportation terminal. It is an integral part of a broader downtown redevelopment plan that is expected to create thousands of jobs, stimulate private investment and generate millions in new tax revenue to the city.
The Las Vegas Arts Commission commissioned local artists, Sean Russel and Zak Ostrowski to create unique and original works of art for the New City Hall. Sean Russel’s “Rivalis” paintings adorn the lobby and various other floors of the new City Hall. Zak Ostrowski’s mixed media “Bristles” can be seen behind the information desk and inside the employee cafeteria.
