Las Vegas Lineup “Identifying the past for the future” on Display January and February

| Changing Gallery | Featured Exhibit

The LVCVA’S Las Vegas News Bureau and the Nevada State Museum Las Vegas have captured the rich history of Las Vegas in their photo archives. The images range from celebrity photos to local birthday parties, and many of these images have never been identified. In the Collaborative exhibition “Las Vegas Lineup” they are presenting their unidentified images to the public and asking members of the community to help identify their history.

 

For Over 70 years, The Las Vegas News Bureau has captured the sights and sounds of the world’s leading destination like no one else. It has played a unique role in promoting Las Vegas by documenting unforgettable images. Today,  the News Bureau continues to play an important role in marketing Las Vegas as part of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.

Founded in 1982,  the mission of the Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas is to inspire and and educate a diverse public about the history and natural history of Nevada. The museum opened to the public in October of 2011 in its current location at 309 S. Valley View Blvd with 70,000 square-feet of exhibit space, library and collection storage. The Nevada State Museum at the springs preserve is double the size of its former location at Lorenzi Park . The additional space allows for the display and interpretation of new artifacts such as paleontological fossils and new collections such as the 8000 piece Folies Bergere costume archive.

The exhibit has been refreshed with a whole new era of Las Vegas – the Swinging ‘60s” – and the two agencies are once again asking for help in identifying the subjects of the photographs. The exhibit is running at The Lost City Museum in Overton through the end of February.
