E-228: Millennial Serpent Theory

Random Vegas
A tile art mosaic roughly 40 foot in diameter and split evenly, like a reflecting pool inside a poker chip, was unveiled at McCarran Airport near level 1 baggage claim in August of 2016.  The art represents the past with properties like the Landmark, Dunes, Sands and events like Nuclear tests and Evil Kneivel's jump over the Fountains at Caesars Palace; The present is represented by properties like Luxor, Wynn, Stratosphere and iconic landmarks like the Mirage volcano and High Roller observation wheel.  The mosaic was part of a $30 million dollar renovation to terminal 1

It’s one of those things you have to see in Vegas.  It’s the kind of thing you would expect to find at Venetian, Caesars or Bellagio instead of that WTF thing they have on the lobby ceiling.  Tropicana’s 4,000 square foot stained glass ceiling, known as the Tiffany ceiling, is gorgeous, iconic and sets the mood for a classic Vegas gaming environment.  In the multiple proposed renovation and expansions it has been threatened to be removed but to date, it has stood the test of time. That being said, be sure to make a point of seeing it before it’s too late.  Thank you, once again, to friend of the show Scott Roeben aka @VitalVegas for sharing not only this picture but his gifted skill as a photographer
