The Las Vegas News Bureau “Re-Visualizes Las Vegas” with Traveling Exhibit
The Las Vegas News Bureau has unveiled a traveling art exhibit created by Brian Jones, a photographer who worked with the News Bureau for 20 years (Pictured: Elvis Presley and Priscilla Beaulieu Wedding 1967)

In a series of re-interpretations titled “Re-Visualizing Las Vegas” Jones has brought to life a new perspective to many of the timeless black-and-white images using modern digital techniques and applies vibrant colors and soft pastels to capture the period in time.

“I have lived and worked in Las Vegas for more than 23 years,” says photographer Brian Jones. “I have a great deal of love and respect for this city and through my art I am hoping to give some of the iconic images in Vegas history a new life.”

While the primary function of the Las Vegas News Bureau, operated by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, is to work with the news media, its vast collection of archival images is shared with the public through community exhibitions.

“These images bring a new look and energy to what we think of when we think of classic Las Vegas,” says Lisa Jacob, director of the Las Vegas News Bureau. “We are excited to be able to share these images with the community.”

In addition to “Re-Visualizing Vegas,” other exhibits from the Las Vegas News Bureau also on display include:

  • “The Golden Age of Glam” at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
  • “The Las Vegas Showgirl” at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Grand Lobby and Central Hall corridor

The photos from the exhibit are on display until Sept. 28, 2015, at the Foley Federal Building at 300 S. Las Vegas Blvd. during normal operating hours. The exhibition is free to the public.
