The Las Vegas arts scene has undergone a lot of changes since 2009, when the Las Vegas Art Museum closed its doors. Its most high-profile champion, Dave Hickey, left town with his wife, Libby Lumpkin, who ran the museum. The community's monthly art festival shut down for a while, and then changed hands. But the number of artists and art galleries has increased, and the Arts District is expanding. So we'll talk to several guests about the state of the art scene, and what Las Vegas needs to do to raise the bar.
