Reed Whipple Cultural Center

Mid-century modern buildings

Originally a Mormon Church & Recreational facility before it was taken over by the city of Las Vegas in the late 1960s when it stood temporarily as City Hall, then as the Reed Whipple Cultural Arts Center in the early 70s, this handsome 60s building boasts a large sweeping facade with beautiful block detailing and a bright, playful mosaic above its main entrance.

Although the Cultural Corridor Theater Center, led by the Las Vegas Shakespeare Company, had plans to occupy the space a few years ago, plans change… so this mid-century gem currently sits empty.

Located just north and across the street from the Neon Museum, downtown.
