MURAL

From the Land Beyond Beyond (2020),

The monumental mural was inspired by the great mid-century iconic signs of Las Vegas and the 1958 movie, The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad. In the movie, Sokurah the Magician says, “From the land beyond beyond… from the world past hope and fear… I bid you Genie, now appear.”

The mural was commissioned by the Cultural Corridor Coalition as part of the beautification of Downtown Las Vegas through public art projects and generous sponsorship by Frankie’s Tiki Room, The Bunkers Group, Dunn-Edwards Paints and private donors.
