LVAC @ Plaza through January 2016

Las Vegas Arts Council at the Historic Plaza Hotel proudly presented art through the loom of local fiber artist Caroline Rackley, December 2015 through January 2016.


In a partnership with the Plaza Hotel, LVAC asked Caroline to fill the ballroom corridor with her handwoven art, some painted, some embroidered, and all dramatic!
