The Las Vegas Arts Scene after the Smith Center
The Las Vegas Arts Scene after the Smith Center

Listen
AIR DATE: March 15, 2012

The Smith Center is open. But what does it mean for local performers and artists? Will they play a role? Or will Smith Center be largely an all-purpose shed for out-of-town acts? Can smaller arts companies and galleries survive? Or will the Smith Center boost interest in the arts? Rekindle some of the better days in the arts community because of the boom?

COMMENTS:
There is no doubt that that The Smith Center for the Performing Arts represents a paradigm shift in Nevada's cultural scene. I would even venture and say that Nevada's cultural nexus now lies in Southern Nevada.
