Local artist Mark Melnick will unveil artwork commissioned for the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) Tuesday and Wednesday.
Melnick will install his artwork at the Westcliff Transit Center, 25 S. Durango Dr., between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday. His paintings will cover a total of 360 square feet on the north and south walls of the transit center, and a total of 180 square feet of the east and west walls.
RTC officials said the artwork includes “colorful and detailed images that reflect the Las Vegas Valley, his outdoor interests of hiking and biking, and they promote sustainable modes of transportation. His artwork is also sprinkled with hidden messages.”
Melnick’s local portfolio includes murals at the revamped Marble Manner Community Center in Las Vegas and at the Suncoast Hotel & Casino.
The RTC’s Arts in Transit program is a federally funded program designed to enhance transit amenities.
