Emily Fromm

The 2018 LVJFF artwork by Bay Area artist Emily Fromm depicts the historic Blue Angel originally designed by Betty Willis who also designed the famous Welcome to Las Vegas Sign. For over 60 years our Blue Angel stood as a Guardian Angel of Las Vegas. Soon after being removed from her pedestal, the tragic massacre on October 1, 2017 occurred. In the spirit of her pending restoration and return to prominence, our LVJFF utilizes her symbolic significance in the spirit of Tikkun Olam תיקון עולם repairing the world and healing our community.
