Las Vegas, 29–30 Dec 2015

No pictures from the Strip this time; I think I’ve done it to death. These are pictures of wall and utility box art. Most of them are from the downtown area, which is a great place for art. Click any picture to view a larger version.

Parklet in downtown area. Stone table with checkerboard and map of Las Vegas Top of bench w. picture of Black-tailed Jackrabbit.

Some signage. The first one caught my eye because that’s pretty much of a niche market. I really liked the design of the parking sign. The third one is near a dog park downtown, and the last two just made me laugh.

Concrete barrier labeled “Trench Plate Rental” Parking sign with arrow as part of the design Sign reading “Never be afraid to throw your head back and howl.” Motel sign reading “Llamas stay for free!” Plaque reading “Any bikes left longer than 36 hours will be donated to Burning Man.”
