Plans Announced for Modern Art Museum Complex Downtown

A group has announced plans to create a new museum and cultural center in downtown Las Vegas.

The Modern Contemporary Art Museum will be one of three parts of a cultural center planned for two acres near the arts district.

The 35,000-square-foot museum will have several galleries and host rotating exhibits. It will focus on art from the 20th century forward.

Developers have already received a pledge of $2.4 million in land and cash donations and are currently working to get $29 million in capitol to complete the project.

The idea of the museum and cultural center is to showcase modern and contemporary art, technology and design. Besides the museum, the complex will include the Center for Creativity, which will offer education programs and interactive labs.

The third element of the cultural center will be Luminous Park, which will include a sculpture garden, walking paths, and community gathering spaces.

Several prominent Las Vegans are on the board of directors for the project. In the coming months, they will be hosting meetings and workshops to discuss ways to bring the project to light.
