Paintbrush Gateway Sculptures Dedication

A pair of 45-foot-tall Paintbrush Gateway sculptures by world renowned artist Dennis Oppenheim will be dedicated at a ceremony at the site of one of the paintbrushes near Brett Wesley Gallery, located at 1112 S. Casino Center Blvd.

Mayor Oscar B. Goodman, Mayor Pro Tem Gary Reese, Arts Commission Chairman Rob McCoy and the artist’s widow, Amy Plumb, will be on hand to dedicate the sculptures. Following the dedication, Brett Wesley Gallery will host an exhibition of artwork by Oppenheim.

The two sculptures include LED lights and are installed on Charleston Boulevard at Casino Center Boulevard and at Fourth Street. Oppenheim specially designed the sculptures to serve as way-finding guides to the Las Vegas Arts District. Oppenheim’s creation is comprised of two large-scale paintbrush sculptures that feature colorful, animated lights and a beam of light that extends from the tips of the brushes into the night sky. Oppenheim passed away as the sculptures were being completed.
