An alumni of CCAI's recent spring exhibition, The Radiant City, Justin Favela incorporates humor and art history into this site-specific sculpture installation in the Rotunda Gallery. Borrowing from works in the public art collection at CityCenter, the artist re-imagines these objects for the employees and visitors of the Clark County Government Center. CityCenter’s permanent collection of 20th and 21st century art features works by internationally acclaimed artists. Justin Favela’s COUNTYCENTER features mixed media cardboard works that cover Maya Lin’s Silver River, Frank Stella’s Damascus Gate I, Jenny Holzer’s Las Vegas, and more; all have been appropriated and modified for the Government Center site.
