Two must-see pop-up art exhibitions/galleries are coming in February to downtown Las Vegas’ Juhl, the iconic luxury condominium community spanning an entire city block, just minutes from the Arts District. A real coup for Juhl, the acclaimed artist and design duo – the Haas Brothers – will premier “HAAS VEGAS” on February 16 and emerging artist Gabriel Barcia-Colombo, the Neon Museum’s Artist in Residence, debuts “Simulations of the Sacred” on February 12.
“As an arts enclave, downtown Las Vegas and Juhl, in particular, are perfectly situated to showcase such esteemed and creative artists. We’re tremendously excited and proud that they have chosen Juhl’s Studio Collection of live-work loft spaces for their exhibitions,” said Uri Vaknin, an ardent supporter of arts and culture who currently serves as chair of the board of trustees for The Neon Museum and is a principal with KRE Capital, which owns a large portfolio of condominiums in Las Vegas, including Juhl.

Art world giants Michele C. Quinn of MCQ FINE ART and Marianne Boesky Gallery, NY are collaborating for a pop-up exhibition of the HAAS BROTHERS, entitled HAAS VEGAS at Juhl – an immersive exhibition of fine art and design objects from the Texas born /Los Angeles based twin brothers, Nikolai and Simon Haas.
From their beginnings as furniture designers, the Haas Brothers eclectic use of design and materials has spurned arbitrary artistic boundaries and hierarchies, creating a playful and provocative world that merges art, fashion, film, music, and design. Their work explores aesthetic themes related to nature, science fiction, sexuality, and psychedelia in materials that range from brass, porcelain, and fur to highly technical resins and polyurethane. Individual figures come to life with their playful personalities and energetic presence. Through their unique vision and creative balance, the brothers have tapped into the subconscious between animation and traditional sculpture with a unique language like no other.
