Artist Kenny Scharf talking with the Shepard Fairey crew and RETNA at The Cosmopolitan's WALLWORKS unveiling and reception.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas held a reception at the Lou Ruvo Brain Institute in Las Vegas on October 14, 2010 to celebrate the artists, their unique contributions, and the unveiling of WALLWORKS.
WALLWORKS is four site-specific artist murals, which are located in The Cosmopolitan's parking garage on levels B2 through B5. The commissioned murals are by four major figures in contemporary art: Shepard Fairey (B2), RETNA (B3), Kenny Scharf (B4) and Shinique Smith (B5).
Here are links to videos of each artist talking about the WALLWORKS project:
The New York-based nonprofit Art Production Fund and The Cosmopolitan have partnered to bring art and artists to The Cosmopolitan so visitors and guests can experience different types of artwork in new, unique and unexpected ways.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas opened December 15, 2010.
