AIR DATE: January 19, 2012

"The Green Felt Jungle" was a 1963 book about Vegas' seedy corruption - from the mafia to dirty politics.  Artist Mark Brandvik decided to expand that theme and create a literal "Green Felt Jungle" gym.  The playground gym is made of pieces of architecture from around Las Vegas, to symbolize both the abandoned construction sites and the hope for future growth.  Las Vegas native Mark Brandvik discusses how his "jungle gym" represents the ugly and the beautiful aspects of a changing city.
