Originally designed by Charles F. Bernard, Vegas Vickie took her place on the world-famous Fremont Street Experience in 1980, welcoming visitors from the rooftop of Bob Stupak’s Glitter Gulch Casino. Derek gingerly brought her down in 2016 and sent her to Las Vegas-based sign company YESCO for a multi-year refurbishment. Through research including Mr. Bernard’s original drawings, great care was given to put her back to her original paint and neon color scheme. The sign now lives as a signature art piece in Circa’s lobby.
Additional details on the works and other utility features will be shared in the coming weeks.
