Dennis Oppenheim's Big Paintbrushes
Dennis Oppenheim's Big Paintbrushes

Listen
AIR DATE: June 10, 2011

Two 45-foot paintbrushes tower on opposite ends of the street on Charleston, by the Arts District.  The $700,000 installation was the source of controversy when plans were changed from the initial proposal, and a brush was improperly installed.  And then, the artist died in January.  The paintbrushes are finally being unveiled today.  We talk to the artist's wife about their meaning, and whether they're a true symbol of the Las Vegas Arts District.
