Antonio Morelli's Journey to Las Vegas
Through a partnership with the Junior League of Las Vegas, the Online Nevada Encyclopedia is pleased to present an exhibit showcasing the life and home of Antonio R. Morelli. The exhibit uses images from the Morelli Collection (soon to be housed at UNLV Special Collections), and from photographers Alan Sandquist, Rex Windom, and Richard Hooker.
In addition, Alan Hess, champion of Mid-Century Modern architecture, preservationist, writer, and architect, composed the essay that accompanies the images. Hess has written over fifteen books in his series on the subject of Mid-Century Modern architecture and has been instrumental in qualifying a number of structures for the National Register of Historic Places.
