From Oct. 27 to Oct. 30, The Neon Museum will host a four-day event, Duck Duck Shed: Celebrating Las Vegas Architecture, Design, and Culture. The new event will recognize the iconic architecture that defines Sin City as a cultural hub.
“The Neon Museum tells the stories of Las Vegas history through its iconic art form of neon,” says Aaron Berger, executive director of The Neon Museum, in a press release. “However, neon signs are only one element of the city’s unique history in the fields of design and culture. Las Vegas’ architecture and design has evolved over the decades and inspired many. We are proud to launch Duck Duck Shed that will present the city’s history through its architecture with nationally renowned lecturers and unforgettable experiences.”
The first-time, four-day event highlights Las Vegas’ architectural character over the decades. Programming will include presentations by nationally acclaimed speakers, including author, historian, urban planner and architect Alan Hess and Jon Sparer, the famed architect behind the Mirage, Paris Las Vegas and Bellagio in Las Vegas.
Duck Duck Shed will also offer tours of historic Las Vegas neighborhoods and properties by foot, coach and helicopter. One tour not to miss? An exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime look at Siegfried & Roy’s Jungle Palace, a private estate that is not open to the public.
The event will culminate with a black-tie gala at Jungle Palace to celebrate the 10th anniversary of The Neon Museum at its current location in Downtown Las Vegas. For more information on Duck Duck Shed, visit www.duckduckshed.com.
