23 May FINE ART IN LAS VEGAS: PIPE DREAM, BY TIM BAVINGTON
Featured at the east end of the two-acre Symphony Park, and serving as a frame to the outdoor stage, Pipe Dream is a commissioned fine art piece by internationally recognized artist, Tim Bavington. Music is the genesis of Bavington’s paintings. Through synthetic polymer paint, Bavington acts as a translator between the aural and the visual as he transforms guitar solos, melodies and bass lines into vertical bands of color. “Fanfare for the Common Man,” a 20th-century American classical music work by American composer Aaron Copland, was selected by The Smith Center as the musical “muse” from which Bavington would pull his paintings. The composition was carefully selected by The Smith Center, as it resonates with its message to serve the common man, or in The Smith Center’s scenario, the community.
“Pipe Dream” at Symphony Park, located adjacent to the Smith Center, 361 Symphony Park Avenue, Las Vegas; open daily from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., free to the public.
