5 Years Later: Remembering 1 October & Becoming Vegas Stronger
Starting in September 2022, the Clark County Museum will host exhibits that explore the community’s grief and healing process since the shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival. A retrospective called “5 Years Later: Remembering 1 October & Becoming Vegas Stronger” will feature letters, posters, signs, and other items from the museum’s 22,000-piece 1 October collection in the Clark County Museum’s exhibit hall from September 23, 2022, through January 30, 2023.
There will be a free opening reception on September 23, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. PT, that will include tours of the new storage facility that houses the artifacts. Local musician and 1 October survivor Pat Dalton Amico will perform his tribute songs, “Forever Family” and “58 Angels,” at the start of the reception.
Museum volunteers spent 18 months cataloging artifacts left at the local landmark and other locations. Every artifact has been photographed and is online and available for viewing on the museum’s website page. The museum also is collecting stories behind memorial items to be included in its efforts to tell the story of how our community responded to 1 October. A form is posted on the museum’s website at https://tinyurl.com/yybjtes2 for anyone interested in sharing their story about what they left at one of the memorial sites.
