Issue #6 – Scavenger Hunt: Public Art

From the beginning of time, man has been using pictures on walls to tell a story, make a statement, or just share the beauty of artistic creation with others. Petro glyphs, or ancient drawings most often found on cave walls, were one of the first forms of public art, and can be seen in areas of Las Vegas such as the Valley of Fire and Red Rock Canyon. More recently, we see public art all around our city in the form of wall murals, sculptures, and architecture. Go on the Circles hunt for public art and see how much of the art in the photos you can find!
