The Cosmopolitan Of Las Vegas to Feature Artist Shelter Serra in Artist-in-Residence Program at P3 Studio

April 21, 2011 by  

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is pleased to announce that Shelter Serra is the latest artist to be featured in the resort’s artist-in-residence program. Serra’s installation “The Trophy Room,” which features a collection of statuary lions will reside in the P3 Studio.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ artist-in-residence program brings emerging and established contemporary artists to the resort inviting them to utilize space for creative production and exhibition of their work. The program debuted with artist Fab 5 Freddy when the resort opened December 15, 2010. Las Vegas Artist Steven Spann followed with his exhibit Trash=Art.

Shelter Serra’s art focuses on altering the traditional meaning behind an object to reflect a different cultural understanding. “The Trophy Room” is a display of 20 colorful statuary Lions made from paper mache and hung like pinatas. The transformation of Lion lawn ornaments, traditionally associated with prestige and nobility, reflect the surrounding sights, lights and entertainment that defines Las Vegas. This display allows viewers to have an overall sensory experience and reflect on the city’s vibrant atmosphere. Shelter will work within the space through May 13.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ 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.
