Eagle Archives, Aug. 26, 1961: Liquor store is also an art gallery thanks to owner’s talent with brush | History

Not every liquor store doubles as an art gallery. But at Jimmie’s Dalton Avenue Package Store you can buy a six-pack and take in an art exhibit simultaneously.

The canvases are by Jimmie himself, namely, James J. O’Malley Jr. Around the store, arranged above the groaning shelves of goodies, are some 25 paintings, products of the proprietor.

Art collection at Allegiant Stadium looks at Raiders and Las Vegas history

Elvis is there, of course. So are
Rat Pack poster boy Frank Sinatra, film goddess Marilyn Monroe and a bemused alien from Area 51, because no self-respecting collection of Vegascentric art could exclude icons like those.

But it’s the context of the figures — Elvis wearing a Las Vegas Raiders jersey, Ol’ Blue Eyes dressed like a retro NFL coach in a Raiders cap, Marilyn falling out of a Raiderette uniform, and Alien Guy going all-in for the Raiders — that signal the collection’s purpose as a celebration, even a meshing, of Las Vegas history and Raiders tradition.
