In recognition of what would have been Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday on December 12, 2015, the Las Vegas News Bureau is celebrating his legendary career in Las Vegas through exhibitions featuring iconic and rarely seen images from its archives. With exhibit narratives written by Deirdre Clemente, Associate Director of Public History for The University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and artifacts on loan from The Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas (courtesy of Tom Dyer) at the Las Vegas Convention Center location, the exhibition highlights Sinatra’s impact on Southern Nevada – from his generosity in the community to his undeniable imprint on the Las Vegas entertainment scene.
