NEW! Las Vegas Mural at Fashion Show



In partnership with local artist Michael Dodson and curator Patrick Duffy, Fashion Show has debuted a larger than life three-dimensional mural on the northern Plaza staircase. The nature-inspired painted installation titled, ‘Be Kind to Bugs’ pays tribute to Nevada’s desert landscape. This Las Vegas art installation joins a collection of awe-inspiring pieces housed at Fashion Show.


Located on the northern strip-side Plaza staircase near Neiman Marcus, the Las Vegas mural resembles the natural beauty of Nevada and boasts a vibrant desert landscape. The multi-dimensional mural showcases pulsating hues that shift gradually from one to another and feature desert tones of red, orange and yellow in honor of Red Rock Canyon. In addition, the delicate and rugged scenery is complemented by an array of cacti and flowers, plus a colorful arrangement of butterflies that dance through the air.


“There is nothing more exciting than seeing an idea come to life, especially here in Las Vegas,” explains Duffy, CEO of the Nevada School of the Arts. “Now in our second staircase installment on The Plaza, we have been able to create not one, but two really unique concepts at Fashion Show that add a little color to Las Vegas, and after months of curation, I am beyond thrilled with the art installation Michael has created. It’s certainly a must-see art piece in the Las Vegas community.”


This one-of-a-kind artistic experience features over 50 unique colors, painted entirely by freehand, and took the artist 15 days to complete. Showcasing various gradients of the desert landscape, ‘Be Kind to Bugs’ joins Fashion Show’s ever evolving colorful art program on The Plaza. Guests are encouraged to take images at the newest hand-painted art installation at Fashion Show and share their experience on social media by tagging @fashionshowlv and use the hashtag #thefutureiscolorful and #fashionshowlv.
