For about as long as most people can remember, there’s been a hope for downtown Las Vegas to become a hub for the arts.
There is, in fact, an arts district. There are galleries there, and there’s hope, one day, for a major art museum. Smatterings of art from Burning Man are scattered about. Some murals left over from Life is Beautiful.
But is there a true arts community?
One may be coming.
It’s a place called The Lucy.
Beverly Rogers and her Rogers Foundation is opening The Lucy, a three-story artists-in-residence condo in downtown Las Vegas soon. At 6th Street and Bonneville Avenue, it will also house a combo bookstore and coffee shop.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
