One of the outstanding clients that Kirvin Doak Communications is proud to represent is The Smith Center for the Performing Arts. Given that this new performing arts center will be the epicenter of arts and culture in Las Vegas, it is inspiring to be part of a project that will literally change Southern Nevada.
Over the past few months, The Smith Center has been celebrating milestone after milestone leading up to the March 2012 opening. From the fundraising efforts to raising the Bell Tower to announcing the Broadway Las Vegas season, the center is well on their way to being the artistic foundation of the area.
Last week, I was proud to be present at the Carillon Bell unveiling at the site of The Smith Center. Seeing generations of families, individual supporters and companies alike reinforced the importance of such a venue. As the 46 silver bells are raised into the tower, it will become Nevada’s first Carillon Bell tower and one of the few bell towers of this magnitude in a performing arts center anywhere. It is sure to add to the pride The Smith Center will bring to the people of Las Vegas.
As great as it is working on such a positive, community-changing project like The Smith Center, it is amazing to know that the company you work puts its money where its press releases and advertising is by supporting great projects like the center. When arriving at the construction site, I was in awe of the gleaming bells of varying sizes and the numerous supporters turning out to commemorate their contribution with a photo. What I loved even more was seeing Kirvin Doak Communications had its very own bell, a legacy of the company’s own support of this amazing center.
Once raised into the tower, no one will be able to see the our name – or that of the 46 others that supported the bell fundraising campaign. But we’ll know it’s there, and when it rings, it will be playing our tune.
