New Mural Features ‘3 of the Most Iconic Signs in Las Vegas History’ | Las Vegas Review-Journal

Article Excerpt:

Last September, Las Vegas artist James Stanford began designing a large-scale mural for an abandoned building in downtown Las Vegas that used to be the Ukulele Lounge.

He had collaborated with the Cultural Corridor Coalition, raised capital, designed for three external walls, and had crews go out to clean up the area and paint the building white.

When a crew member asked around at a neighboring building if he could use their power, he was told that the Ukulele Lounge owner was demolishing the building in just 10 days.
