The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is pleased to announce the second artist to be featured in the artist-in-residence program at P3 Studio is Las Vegas artist Steven Spann, featuring a take on his latest project, Trash = Art.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ artist-in-residence program brings emerging and established contemporary artists to the resort and invites them to utilize space for creative production and exhibition of their work. The program debuted with artist Fab 5 Freddy when the resort opened in December 15, 2010.
Originally from Texas, Steven Spann denied a lucrative financial planning career to pursue painting full time. In his latest project, Trash = Art, Steven Spann has done a series of paintings using repurposed materials. These include fabric, styrofoam, cardboard, plexiglass, broken chairs, plates, paper, glasses and more. While in residence at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Steven will collect discarded materials from resort guests, partners and CoStars to repurpose for his series. Steven will work within the space Tuesday – Friday, 2pm – 10pm and Saturday – Sunday, 11am – 2pm and 6pm – 10pm. For more information on Steven Spann, please visit: www.stevenspann.com.
The resort’s artist-in-residence program represents one component of its larger art program, which was created through a partnership with New York City’s Art Production Fund, a non-profit organization dedicated to producing ambitious public art projects, reaching new audiences and expanding awareness through contemporary art. Art Production Fund helped curate the unique programs at the resort, which feature several genres across the artistic spectrum.
