Photos on display

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.

For more than 65 years, the Las Vegas News Bureau has documented unforgettable images on film and amassed a comprehensive photographic and video collection showcasing the history of Las Vegas. The archive includes entertainers and sports figures, world-class concerts and special events, and the ever-evolving skyline.

Today, the Las Vegas News Bureau supports the marketing efforts of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. While its primary function is to work with the news media, the News Bureau shares its collection with the public through community exhibitions.

In a series of re-interpretations titled “Re-Visualizing Las Vegas,” Jones applied vibrant colors and soft pastels to timeless black-and-white images to capture the period in time.

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

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