LAS VEGAS (AP) — A new postage stamp celebrating Nevada's 150th birthday is set to be unveiled in Las Vegas.
The new design will be revealed Thursday in a ceremony at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts that will feature Nevada's senators, governor and others. The stamp itself will be available at post offices nationwide on Friday.
The stamp features a close-up image of Fire Canyon, which is part of Valley of Fire State Park in southern Nevada. Reno artist Ron Spears painted the canyon as the rising sun hit the sandstone formations in the park.
Spears is the lead artist for slot machine manufacturer International Game Technology and has illustrated dozens of video games.
