  • Visitor Experience

This session rethinks venue, context, and audience through firsthand accounts of Las Vegas’s unusual—and celebrated—visual art experiences. Discussion focuses on strategies for turning presumed liabilities into assets, nurturing a migrant audience, and the complexities of corporate culture and sponsorship. This session hopes to inspire a dialogue about the significance of, and significant challenges to, creating space for culture where one might least expect it.
