Know your art: "Monument to the Simulacrum"
Story by Kirsten Swenson
You may have noticed a jagged peak of steel and acrylic set off against the Mission-style architecture of the Historic Fifth Street School. This addition to the cityscape, located in Centennial Plaza at South 4th Street and Lewis, is a sculpture by Stephen Hendee titled, "Monument to the Simulacrum." Hendee teaches in the Art Department at UNLV, and his work has been exhibited in New York City at the Whitney Museum and the New Museum, as well as the Kemper Museum in Kansas City and the Las Vegas Art Museum
