City Hall has acquired some new artwork thanks to two UNLV graduate students. They have been hard at work to create and install a new art installation that will welcome visitors near First and Clark downtown as you approach City Hall.
The piece, called Strata, honors southern Nevada’s unique desert landscape and sedimentary rock formations. In response to the urban landscape, this installation strives to raise awareness that contributes to better decision-making about our environment.
The artists, Audrey Barcio and Rebecca Pugh, are part of a public art course at UNLV. Each piece of this installation is 25 yards long. It took them two days to paint all of the panels and an entire day to install one of the 25 yard panels; there are four total panels in the installation.
