The Moulin Rouge and Black Rights in Las Vegas

The Moulin Rouge and Black Rights in Las

Originally opened in May 1955, the Moulin Rouge Hotel and Casino quickly rose in popularity as Las Vegas' first racially-integrated hotel and casino. Sammy Davis, Jr., Louis Armstrong, and other A-list black singers and musicians performed at the Moulin Rouge on a regular basis, and for once they were allowed to spend the night in the same hotel where they performed. This book explains the important role that the hotel-casino played in early desegregation efforts in Las Vegas. With the Moulin Rouge as the backdrop, it provides an analysis of the evolution of race-relations in Las Vegas, including a detailed account of the landmark 1960 desegregation agreement. Finally, it examines recent efforts to rebuild and renovate the historic establishment.

Pacifica Island Art - Jardin de Paris Show Moulin Rouge - Vintage Cabaret Casino Poster by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec ca. 1897 - Master Art Print - 12in x 18in

Pacifica Island Art - Jardin de Paris Show

Enjoy a taste of the Golden Age of Travel with these beautiful Fine Art Prints by Pacifica Island Art. This print will look wonderful framed in the home, office or restaurant and is perfect for the Travel Poster art collector. Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864 - 1901) was a French painter, printmaker, draughtsman and illustrator whose immersion in the colorful and theatrical life of Paris in the late 1800s yielded a collection of exciting, elegant and provocative images of the modern and sometimes decadent life of those times. He was drawn to Montmartre, the area of Paris famous for its bohemian lifestyle and the haunt of artists, writers, and philosophers. Toulouse-Lautrec - along with Cézanne, Van Gogh and Gauguin - is among the most well-known painters of the Post-Impressionist period. In a 2005 auction at Christie's auction house, a new record was set when "La Blanchisseuse", an early painting of a young laundress, sold for US$22.4 million. He excelled at depicting people in their working environments, with the colour and movement of the gaudy night-life present but the glamour stripped away, and was masterful when painting crowd scenes in which the figures are highly individualized. His style was influenced by the classical Japanese woodprints which became popular in art circ...

Lights Out at the Moulin Rouge

Lights Out at the Moulin

April Mae March is a young African American writer who takes a weekend trip to Las Vegas. She’s collecting more research for the novel she’s writing about a sixty-two-year-old mystery. It's all about the 1955 Moulin Rouge Casino and Hotel and why it closed so abruptly; under suspicious circumstances. April is dying to understand how Nevada’s first racially integrated casino could have had such a short lifespan. Armed with the facts that she has collected so far, she has her own thoughts about what may have happened. But every single piece of the puzzle just seems to lead to more and more questions. She's obsessed and fascinated by the true stories of mob bosses, corrupt politicians, and sleazy business owners in 1950s Nevada. The issue of black entertainers and racial integration makes it all the more intriguing. She leaves Los Angeles on a Greyhound Bus and is determined to discover some answers. April is so excited that she refuses to give in to the warning signs that indicate she might actually be in danger. In the end, her Moulin Rouge adventure turns out to be so much more than she ever could have imagined.

Enjoy a taste of the Golden Age of Travel with these beautiful Fine Art Prints by Pacifica Island Art. This print will look wonderful framed in the home, office or restaurant and is perfect for the Travel Poster art collector. Jules Chéret (1836 -1932) was a French painter and lithographer who became a master of Belle Époque poster art. He has been called the father of the modern poster. At age thirteen, he began a three-year apprenticeship with a lithographer and then his interest in painting led him to take an art course at the École Nationale de Dessin. Like most other fledgling artists, Chéret studied the techniques of various artists, past and present, by visiting Paris museums. From 1859 to 1866, he was trained in lithography in London, England, where he was strongly influenced by the British approach to poster design and printing. On returning to France, Chéret created vivid poster ads for the cabarets, music halls, and theaters such as the Eldorado, the Olympia, the Folies Bergère, Théâtre de l'Opéra, the Alcazar d'Été and the Moulin Rouge. He created posters and illustrations for the satirical weekly Le Courrier français. In 1895, Chéret created the Maîtres de l'Affiche collection, a significant art publication of smaller sized reproductions featuring the b...
