Grand Opening Of Cultural Corridor Pedestrian Bridge

Las Vegas Mayor Oscar B. Goodman, Ward 5 Councilman Ricki Y. Barlow and members of the Cultural Corridor Coalition will celebrate completion of a pedestrian bridge that will provide residents and tourists with convenient access to seven downtown cultural institutions.

The bridge, located near Cashman Center, sits between Lied Discovery Children’s Museum/Las Vegas Library and the Las Vegas Natural History Museum, and also provides access to The Neon Museum, the Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort and State Historic Park and the Reed Whipple Cultural Center. The bridge features an LED artistic design created by David Griggs. The artistic design, dubbed by Griggs as “Vegas Arabesque,” was inspired by the legacy of Las Vegas, its unique setting in the southwest and the location of the bridge among Las Vegas’ cultural institutions. Vegas Arabesque also pays homage to vintage signs located nearby at the Neon Museum.
