Hundreds of contemporary art works by both established and emerging artists from all over the world can be found throughout The Cosmopolitan. Designed to inspire discovery, the collection includes large-scale paintings, photography, mixed media works, sculptures, murals and more. Artists featured include Maya Hayuk, Marilyn Minter, Rosemarie Fiore, Alex Da Corte, Jonathan Borofsky, Nicola Lopez, Siobhan Liddell, Sylvia Hommert and many others.
The Cosmopolitan’s digital art program spans numerous screens, panels and displays inside and outside the resort. It includes the award-winning lobby digital art installation, which comprises eight 15-foot columns and a panel spanning the length of the front desk, all of which continuously display a curated library of digital art. Other installations include the Beacon, a two-sided, 150-foot-wide LED video display situated atop the Boulevard Tower and visible across the Las Vegas Valley.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas features six Art-o-mat machines, each of which dispenses a variety of original artwork. Created by artist Clark Whittington, Art-o-mat machines are made from cigarette vending machines that have been repurposed as a vehicle to distribute art to the masses. Over 90 Art-o-mat machines are currently in existence, featuring small works of art by more than 400 artist collaborators. Each piece of Art-o-mat art is boxed and wrapped in cellophane inside of the recycled cigarette machine. Artwork is distributed to the guest via a pull-knob dispensing mechanism—exactly like old-fashioned cigarette vending machines.
