Las Vegas Arts District, or 18b, is a vibrant cultural hub packed with indie art galleries and performance spaces in converted warehouses.
Jeff Hwang: “In Las Vegas, there’s the Strip, there’s Downtown Fremont Street and now you have the Arts District, which is kind of a third theme park. It’s walkable real estate without the price-gouging of the Strip. And it’s all local, so there’s a lot of personality. In the past few years, this place has grown dramatically. There’s something new coming in here every two, three weeks.”
The district is loosely bounded by Hoover Avenue, Wyoming Avenue, Las Vegas Boulevard, and Commerce Street.
When the Arts District was established in 1998, it was just a handful of small studios run by local artists.
