For years, the Clark County Government Center Rotunda Art Gallery has served as the Valley’s primo forum for art installations and sculpture-based exhibits. It’s a dramatic space that gets a lot of foot traffic because, well, everyone at one time or another has to conduct business at the government center. Local and international artists have sought to match the dimensions of the space, often with amazing results. Who could forget Chad Brown’s massive 33-foot century plant shoot he built for his show last year—the wooden piece was so huge that he couldn’t store it and had to destroy it afterward. Only the rotunda gallery can house works that epic. See for yourself, as Stephen Hendee’s light-based installation, “The Pinpoint Remains,” is on display though Aug. 3.
