In November of 1980, I did this plein-air gouache painting of the Landmark Hotel in Las Vegas.
At the time, I never would have guessed that less than 15 years later, it would be demolished. The event happened at night and was featured in Tim Burton’s 1995 movie “Mars Attacks.”
In this 3:40 minute video, you can see the hotel and its collapse (no sound).
