Cirque Gets Visual

Strip entertainment giant Cirque du Soleil is taking over the art scene this month with two big events. The first is Safewalls (Trifecta Gallery in the Arts Factory, 107 E. Charleston Blvd., Suite 135, through Aug. 26), a touring collection of vintage-style circus posters reimagined by contemporary artists. Frank Kozik, Chet Zar and local Casey Weldon created three creepily beautiful Zumanity posters, while Vegas native Amy Sol’s ethereal poster (pictured) makes us wish we could crawl into her visual world. If you prefer your Cirque art in 3-D, then the second event is for you. Sculptor of Cirque performers Richard MacDonald visits his gallery at CityCenter to say hi to fans (1-5 p.m. Aug 14, The Art of Richard MacDonald at Crystals).

Alexander P. Huerta’s murals can be found nearly everywhere in downtown’s Arts District. Colorful, floating palettes, guitars and mysterious eyes signal to whoever’s driving through or strolling by that, Hey, this is where art in Las Vegas happens. Indeed, Huerta’s beautiful works serve as the unofficial markers of our creative center, his bright works elevating the district’s visual profile.
