Las Vegas 18b Arts District is a thriving arts community, but also an ever-changing palate for local graffiti artists to express themselves. It is not uncommon to find amateur filming crews documenting artists as they add new art atop what may be only a few days old.
The Arts District is also home to the long First Friday tradition: a gathering of artists, food, drink, fun, friends, and entertainment The even is free and happens on the first Friday of each month that draws crowds in the thousands. No, I’m not advertising! It’s quite fun, and I strongly recommend it when temperatures aren’t raging hot. If you do ever have a chance to go, be sure to get there early enough to explore the District’s fun shops beforehand. They’re all unique and interesting in their own way.
Photographers: hours ahead of time, if you’re anything like me.
