a r t s + e n t e r ta i n m e n t If you’ve lived in Las Vegas for more than a year, you know well that our fall season lasts approximately 4.7 minutes, wedged between mind-melting summer and gusty, bonecracking winter. Better yet, savor the brief season indoors at the Bellagio Conservatory’s fall display, a wine-themed harvest thang featuring a real vintage wine press, cider mill and, that staple of any harvest scene, a tree with an eerie old-man face. It’s on display through Nov. 24 at the Bellagio hotel-casino. Info:

San Francisco artist Mary Anne Kluth loves two things: 1) theme parks and 2) her dad. Her exhibit “Visitor Center” melds the two loves in fanciful fashion, recreating her father’s memories with a vibrant sense of playful wonder. “Visitor Center” is on exhibit through Dec. 22 at the Contemporary Arts Center.

Ballet Folklórico de Mexico is the troupe performing here, but don’t be surprised if the energy, passion and heart pouring forth from this veritable institution of Mexican culture inspires you to do some dancing yourself. (For maximum preservation of dignity, please refrain from said dancing until you are in the privacy of your own home.) Ballet Folklórico de Mexico performs 7:30 p.m. Nov. 4-5 at the Smith Center. Tickets $24-$59. Info:
