The Cosmopolitan continues to amp up its P3 Studio artist residencies with an impressive and diverse lineup of performances and installations by artists covering the gamut in media and message.
• Sush Machida (September 12-October 7) starts it off by transforming the P3 space into one of his paintings and inviting visitors into his work with vinyl decals in the windows, completed paintings and a mural on the wall. Works-in-progress will be set about, creating a studio feel. Take a moment to sit in the Zen Booth, sip tea and chat with others while reflecting on Machida’s wave paintings.
• Paintallica’s (October 10-November 4) residency should be as insanely delightful as it is completely unpredictable, given that Paintallica artists create unscripted, site-specific installations that are part of an effort to “destroy” or “liberate” spaces with confrontational, visually loud and energetic works, often delving into sensitive issues through installations filled with social commentary.
• Eloise Fornieles (November 7-December 2) renders a natural environment built from Vegas spectacle, creating an endless sea in which she sits in a wooden boat beneath a “never-ending sky” of disco balls. The infinite constellations repeating through mirrors are likely to push the idea of a literal Vegas landscape.
• Ellen Harvey (December 5-January 6) has visitors swapping luck at “the Good Luck Exchange,” where 99 small, bronze lucky charms signed by the artist can be taken by visitors, who leave their own lucky object and a handwritten reason for their selection. Polaroid snapshots capture the charms that come and go.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas dares to be different. From the hotel’s red reservations desks to fine art found throughout the resort, The Cosmopolitan’s signature style is helping to pave its own path on the Las Vegas Strip.
Upon entering the resort, you’re greeted by pillars of video boards playing video art by Digital Kitchen and David Rockwell Studio exclusively produced for The Cosmopolitan. Just beyond that, you’ll find all your favorite casino games on the resort’s 100,000-square-foot casino floor.
The Cosmopolitan’s rooms standout as the resort’s most unique feature. About 2,220 of The Cosmopolitan’s 2,995 rooms have 6-foot deep terraces that span the length of the room, a first at a modern Strip hotel. Other in-room amenities include soaking tubs, kitchenettes and quirky accessories like artsy coffee table books.
The dining experience at The Cosmopolitan isn’t something you’ll find at other Strip resorts, either. All of The Cosmopolitan’s 13 restaurateurs are new to the Las Vegas market. You’ll find American steakhouse fare in a modern setting at STK, top-notch sushi at Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill and the freshest fish flown in from the Mediterranean daily at Estiatorio Milos.
Whether the sun is up or down, Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub is the place to find the party at The Cosmopolitan. The venue is a dayclub/nightclub, complete with a pool and cabanas outside and three different rooms with three different vibes inside.
If nightclubs aren’t your thing, you can grab a drink at one of The Cosmopolitan’s five other bars, like The Chandelier, which is encased in 2 million dripping crystals.
