The City of Las Vegas puts a great deal of thought into the shows it exhibits in its municipal galleries. All four of the City of Las Vegas Galleries offer satisfying exhibits by serious artists from across the US, many of whom demonstrate a decidedly academic bent. The West Las Vegas Art Center stages shows by and for the largely African American community in the neighborhood. Artists without local representation who show at Reed Whipple will sometimes sell work at a big discount owing to the space's non-profit status.
