The Aerial Gallery, part of the First Street Art Trail
The city of Las Vegas first introduced the Aerial Gallery to the community in the year 2000, along Las Vegas Boulevard. Since its creation, the gallery has grown and adjusted to the ever-changing downtown, taking on several forms and locations along the boulevard. The newest installation of the Aerial Gallery will become part of the city’s growing Public Art collection along the First Street Art Trail, an eight-block stretch along First Street, from Bridger Avenue to Boulder Plaza, which unveiled its public art component in 2014. Other features along the trail include the Windows on First temporary art installations, Mary Hill’s Cycled Musings, and Jesse Smigel’ s, Snowball in Vegas.
The city seeks artists and artists teams annually to provide banner art for the Aerial Gallery exhibit along First Street, part of the First Street Art Trail. An honorarium is provided to each selected artist/artist team per-block (8 blocks in total).
