We are proud to take part in First Friday Las Vegas the first Friday night of every month. From 5:00 pm until around midnight, the air is light, the spirit festive and the drinks are cold. Some streets are closed to vehicles, creating pedestrian-friendly walkways that transform into a huge block party. Each month the entertainment shifts and multiplies as ice sculptors, fire breathers and fortune tellers serve as a back-drop for this ongoing festival of art perusal and appreciation.
Local bands perform throughout the evening, and the streets turn into canvases for children (young and old) to decorate with chalk. First Friday is a stage for local galleries, including Perception, to showcase Las Vegas' vital Downtown cultural scene. It's a place to meet friends new and old, and rejoice in the preservation and innovation of a historical neighborhood. In this land of suburbs and strip malls, visitors come from near and far to people-watch, sample new restaurants and revel at area bars.
If you prefer a quiet and more relaxed atmosphere, come down for Preview Thursdays (the evening before First Friday). Relax and stroll through the galleries without the hustle and bustle of the block party, and get first glance at new artwork and installations, and a chance to converse with the artists.
We also will be hosting workshops and special shows. To get in on all that is going on, please like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to keep up with all the latest goings-on and happenings at Perception!
