First Friday Las Vegas announces winner of Wonderland

By Dyuce Woodson. CREATED Aug 21, 2014

First Friday Las Vegas has announced the winner of this month's First Friday Wonderland. 

Local visual artist Brock Nordstrom took the top honor for his piece "The Most Beautiful Thing You've Never/Ever Seen." His use of new media technology explores the imagery of turning what appears to be nothing into art. 

Nordstrom received a $10,000 commission for a future installment at First Friday Las Vegas. This commissioned work is set to be unveiled at September's First Friday on Sept. 5. 

Nordstrom's piece was the first time he showed his work to the public and has since been welcomed to the local artist community. Through his winning First Friday display, he has been approached to show at Life is Beautiful, the three day music, art and culinary event in downtown Las Vegas this October. 

Other finalist included: Epyk Entertainment for "Body of Wonder," Justin Lepper for "Kaleidoscope," Kira Sonaja for "Kandylane Enchanted" and Johnny Hansen for "Esto Es Tu Pelicula."
