The art of Life Is Beautiful 2018 isn’t as surprising as last year, but it still astounds

September 22nd, 2018

Once again, the JustKids studio has curated a striking assortment of murals, with a few eye-popping standouts.

  • It’s not the craziest idea to visit the festival just to see the art, and this year there’s more of it than ever.

  • Like the other critters lurking among the 32 works, the pickled fish carry environmental messages.

  • She also sees Core Contemporary as an event space—hosting classes, lectures, artist talks and even the odd office holiday party.

  • She began by choosing materials that resolve the significant site-specific constraints of the Rotunda: the circular space, constant pedestrian traffic, unpredictable air currents, bright windows ...

  • The resulting art, though boldly minimal in comparison to his other insanely detailed paintings and murals, still looks like classic Misko.

  • Among the stunners are pieces transforming water’s fluid properties into intriguing static forms.

  • It’s tempting to shoot Vegas as a fantasyland; he shoots it as it is—bright, vast and in a constant state of making and undoing.

  • Once the Neon Museum’s showing is done, she’ll be restored and re-situated atop a pole on a traffic island at Charleston and Fremont.

  • What kind of parameters should be set for the display of art in Clark County's public spaces? County commissioners considered new guidelines.

  • Local artists are flummoxed by the sudden, County-ordered closure of Cory McMahon’s experimental art show.

  • Sarah Arnold, Clarice Tara Cuda, Amanda Keating, Julie Meyers, Ty Suksangasophon and Nicole Weber focus on tactile properties of mostly unconventional media.

  • The fest kicks off Friday, May 11, and features a mix of local and out-of-state artists exhibiting their sex-tinged creations.

  • Part of the “plurality” of the show is its refusal to privilege one mode of artistic expression over another.
