The vibrancy of cities is flavored directly by the visual conversations taking place on storefront businesses. Its font is the dialect, its wear and tear the story. The hand-painted, folksy imagery of murals and signage pops out like overheard dialogue on a busy street, offering a quaintness to urban neighborhoods, an identity and voice of its people and commerce. Fortunately, the guys behind the Vegas Vernacular Project took it upon themselves to preserve that disappearing voice in transitioning Downtown Las Vegas. October exhibits at Emergency Arts, Amanda Harris Gallery of Contemporary Art and Trifecta Gallery give a look at the growing repository. For more information, check out vegasvernacular.org.
