1 October Remembrance Exhibit

The Clark County Museum will host a 1 October Remembrance Exhibit in the Rotunda Gallery (located on the first floor of the Clark County Government Center) from September 28 to October 13. The Government Center is open Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The exhibit at the Government Center will include banners and other items from the museum’s collection as well as the Art of Healing mural and Angels of Love exhibit created in remembrance of the first anniversary of 1 October. The Art of Healing mural was created by local artists and students at Las Vegas Academy of the Arts high school. 

Healing Ink: Vegas Responders

Healing Ink covers the scars (physical and emotional) of those affected by violence, helping them reclaim their bodies and continue to heal. On September 29, 2022, they are offering a limited number of free tattoos from professional artists to Southern Nevada responders and other professionals who support emergency response.

The tattoos will be planned by the recipient and artist together, and the designs do not have to relate to their profession. Their goal is to give people what they want, whether it be a memorial, a meaningful representation, or just something beautiful.

Remember Music Festival is the 5 year memorial concert to commemorate The Route 91 Harvest Festival and is organized by The Country Strong Project , Stoney’s Rockin’ Country and Clark County Nevada, with proceeds benefiting the 1October Permanent Memorial. Our vision since the inception of this annual event has been to find one word that encompasses all we were, who we are, and what we strive to be; Remember who you were, Remember to live, love, sing and dance, Remember we are here, dream big, and Remember 58!

This is an intimate event that will take place at the Clark County Amphitheater 10/1 500 S Grand Central Pkwy, Las Vegas, NV 89155

Very limited tickets are available for this event. MIDLAND will be headlining the event this year with Dylan Schneider, Drew Green, Meghan Patrick, Walker Montgomery, Seth Ennis and more to be announced soon. Gates at 1pm This is an all ages event
