It’s no secret Las Vegas loves neon. So does our city’s former urban arts coordinator, Richard Hooker. His solo exhibition, Pregnant Neon: A Tale of Conspicuous Devotion combines bright lights and powerful phrases that make you wrinkle your nose in deep contemplation. See it at Sahara West Library through July 12. LVCCLD.org.
LA VIDA KAHLO
Have you ever seen one of Frida Kahlo’s self-portraits and wondered what’s brewing under her brow? The Mexican artist died 60 years ago, but the Spanish-language play Frida Kahlo: Viva la Vida! gives us a glimpse of her life. Performances run July 11-12 at Winchester Cultural Center theater.
