LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Las Vegas area’s oldest arts organization is shutting down after 25 years in operation.

The Contemporary Arts Center’s board of directors voted to dissolve the organization effective Saturday, citing a lack of funds and the “changing arts climate.”

Its leaders, in an online statement, said funding is no longer available to support the group and its gift of rent-free space at Alios in Las Vegas will soon expire.

The Contemporary Arts Center, operated by one part-time staffer and over a dozen volunteers, worked over the last year to raise funds and increase membership.

Its Juried Show will still take place from April 3-25 at Alios. The show has allowed the group to expose international, national and local artists to a wider audience for 25 years.
