(NYT59) RENO, Nev. -- July 2, 2007 -- NEV-SHOWGIRL-ART-2 -- Karen Burns, center, helped Cassie Joy Hill, left, and Hana Freeman put the finishing touches on costumes as part of an exhibition on showgirls in Reno, Nev., on Friday, June 29, 2007. The first Showgirl Art Competition Exhibition at the Nevada State Historical Society includes a rare turkey ruff boa, bejeweled G-strings and other showgirl artifacts, along with about 20 paintings, is part of a fledgling preservation movement by former showgirls eager to claim and interpret their own history. Dozens of dancers gathered for the opening, aware that the legacy of the lavish and long-gone production shows like the Lido de Paris at the recently imploded Stardust Hotel in Las Vegas is quickly vanishing.
