Local vehicle accidents are the focus of a new art exhibit. Fred Mitchell's "Photographs with Sculptural Tendencies" will feature photos capturing Las Vegas-area vehicular collision sites, including the marks and skids left behind. The photographs are then printed and reconstructed into three-dimensional forms.
On Tuesday, April 2 at 9:15 a.m. the Clark County Commission will honor Mitchell with a proclamation for the exhibit. The Commission will also declare April "Auto Safety Month." Clark County Commissioner Susan Brager will present the proclamation, who was once the victim of an accident involving a drunken driver.
"I applaud Mr. Mitchell, and I hope that the exhibit will help focus community attention on the need to improve traffic safety and safe driving behavior at a time when so many Clark County residents are needlessly injured and killed on our roadways," Brager said.
The exhibit will be open through May 24 at the Rotunda Gallery at the Clark County Government Center located at 500 S. Grand Central Pkwy. The exhibit is free, and is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., except holidays.
Mitchell will also give a presentation on Thursday, April 4 at 6:30 p.m. in the Clark County Government Center's Pueblo Room. The community is invited to the event.
