Elegant sin is still hanging on in Sin City as the Las Vegas’ Erotic Heritage Museum celebrates its first anniversary all this month with a one-of-a-kind exhibition entitled “Sex on the Streets,” featuring contemporary, noncensored artistic works inside the huge 17,000 square-foot museum.
In celebration of the exhibit, urban artists Vezun, Veks 3, KD Matheson, Dray, Damien Drake, Gearboxxxrox and Ras One are donating their time and materials to paint murals on the outside of the museum building.
“Not only will this draw attention to the artists, but it will draw attention to the building as an existing body of work itself,” says Dr. Laura Henkel, EHM resident curator.
The museum will showcase works by Mark Burns and art graduate Ann Davis Mulford; photo-realist Ross Johnson; pop artists Bobby Logic and Francois Dubeau; figurative artist Tom of Finland, Hector Silva; illustrative artist Michael Kirwin; and many more talented artists.
The anniversary party will take place September 12 from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.
