Public Art Surrounds Sun City
Video by Jeannette Carrillo/Link
Las Vegas Academy of the Arts students paired with Sun City Art Club members to create works of art bordering Sun City this summer as part of the city of Las Vegas’ AMP public art program. Students received a stipend for their work, and got a unique opportunity to be mentored by experienced and professional artists. Artwork featured here was completed by Kylee Shay and Debby Resnik, bottom right; Alejandro Ponce and Susan Neiry, top; and Brandom Terres-Sanchez and Quwatha Valentine, bottom left (students’ names appear first as part of each team.)

Virtual Vietnam Wall
We have all heard, and many of us have seen the Vietnam Memorial Wall. Did you know that there is now a virtual wall available on the Web? At virtualwall.org, you can access information on those who served or were lost by clicking on the state, city (or in many cases the neighborhood) where the U.S. veteran lived. The names will appear in alphabetical order. One click and you can access their picture, a short military biography and medals awarded.
