Las Vegans attend Tilting the Basin, Daddy-Daughter dance over weekend

Nearly 1,000 artists and aficionados braved unpaved roads and construction cones to make their way to the March 16 opening of “Tilting the Basin: Contemporary Art of Nevada.” The exhibition, co-presented by the Art Museum at Symphony Park and Nevada Museum of Art in Reno, showcased the work of more than 30 artists from across the state. The name for the exhibition was chosen to reflect the “rising tide of culture in the Basin, and one way you judge the amount and quality of water in a vessel is by tilting it to assay the contents,” said Bill Fox, the Nevada Museum of Art’s director for the Center for Art + Environment.

Disney’s remake of “Beauty and the Beast” may be ruling the box office, but the recent “Belle of the Ball” Daddy Daughter Dance at Life Time Athletic Green Valley was filled with magical moments all its own. More than 50 fathers and their daughters — fueled by cucumber sandwiches and colorful macarons — swayed, sashayed and twirled across the dance floor at the annual event.
