The latest plan for a Las Vegas art museum might just work out

City of Las Vegas

Every few years, talk of a Las Vegas art museum surfaces — and ends in disappointment as the project falls apart.

But the latest plan for the city’s first major, stand-alone art museum might just be the one that works out.

The city of Las Vegas has earmarked 1.5 acres in downtown’s Symphony Park for an art museum, and the state would kick in $5 million. The three-story building would potentially feature three different exhibition spaces.

Big players — Elaine Wynn, the city’s biggest art collector, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, which is the largest art museum in the western United States — are behind this.

Guest: Heather Harmon, executive director, Las Vegas Museum
