An Afternoon at the Morelli House – Where the Arts and History Meet

The Junior League of Las Vegas is opening the doors of the Morelli House to the public for its annual spring open house. “An Afternoon at the Morelli House – Where the Arts and History Meet” is the theme of this year’s event. The event will be held on Sunday, May 15 from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm at the JLLV’s historic mid-century Morelli House located at 861 Bridger Ave. in the downtown historic district.

Co-sponsored by the City of Las Vegas Historic Preservation Commission, the free public event will demonstrate how the visual and theatrical arts record and portray our history. In addition to guided tours inside the House, there will be an art fair in the backyard featuring the paintings of the late Cliff Segerblom and paintings by members of the Nevada Watercolor Society. There will be Chautauqua performances of Helen J. Stewart portrayed by Dr. Linda Miller at 1:30pm and Sojourner Truth portrayed by Kim Russell at 2:30pm. Antonio Morelli, the original owner of the house, was a musical artist himself who conducted the famed Sand’s Hotel orchestra from 1954-1971 and also produced free public concerts for Las Vegas locals for many years. The multi-faceted event will provide an entertaining and interesting afternoon for all who wish to learn about our history through the arts.
