Preview Thursday

The downtown neighborhood of 18b is the heart of the arts in Las Vegas. With downtown’s galleries and studios, it’s the perfect venue for an arts-centric event such as Preview Thursday. Held the first Thursday of every month, Preview Thursday brings together art lovers and community friends to downtown Las Vegas for a monthly celebration and showcase of art, artists, galleries, shops, restaurants, and small businesses. CAC’s mission is to encourage Las Vegans from all over the city to visit 18b and experience art and engage in conversation with many of the artists and gallery owners on hand.
