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).

Urban Legends Resung

By Andreas Hale

You ever notice how the club’s energy gets kicked up a notch when the DJ drops Bell Biv DeVoe’s “Poison”? How about the nostalgic rush you get when hearing K-Ci & JoJo’s “All My Life,” which leads to brutal off-key singing? Now imagine K-Ci & JoJo and Bell Biv DeVoe together in concert with After 7, Dru Hill and Tony! Toni! Toné! If you’re under 25, you’ll likely greet this lineup with a #KanyeShrug. However, if you’re an ’80s baby, the Urban Legends concert on July 30 is the night where you can rekindle childhood memories and do all the off-key singing your soul desires.
