Lightscapes is a program of the Las Vegas Arts Commission in partnership with the Fremont Street Experience, that presents epic scale video art installation projects in downtown Las Vegas on the Fremont Street’s Viva Vision screen. Originated in 2000 by former Arts Commissioner Chairman, James Stanford , the Lightscapes series has featured individual video art projects by Jennifer Steinkamp, Nancy Dwyer/Oliver Wasow and Jim Blashfield. In 2001, Art in America recognized Lightscapes as one of the top twenty public artworks. The last Lightscapes project featured artist Haluk Akakce and was produced in collaboration with Creative Time, New York City’s premiere public art presenter.
Viva Vision is the largest video screen in the world. Standing 90 feet tall and spanning four city blocks, the groundbreaking technology incorporates 12.5 million high-definition LED modules that are synchronized to a 555,000-watt concert quality sound system. Viva Vision has been featured on the History Channel’s “Modern Marvels” program.
