Interactive Art at The Cosmopolitan

Interactive art @ Cosmopolitan
Early February was my annual trip to Las Vegas with my precious husband Thom and my dear friend and partner in crime: Stacie (Gatherings by Stacie) It is a week of non-stop meetings and trade show walking for my husband who is such a good sport to allow me to bring Stacie, we spend our days in our jammies catching up on work, resting, laughing, praying, sharing ideas for business and long heart to hearts about our families and life. Stacie even baked a cake! (not your typical trip to Vegas) When we do get out, The Cosmopolitan is one of our favorite places to play… This year was no exception, we wandered into the P3 Studio @ The Cosmo and found an interactive art project taking place, the artist in residence Jason Adkins shared his idea to take a photo of a piece art, cut that photo into 1 inch squares, numbered to match the 4×4″ gridded squares on the wall, the challenge was then to without seeing the chosen artwork, pick a 1″ piece of the photo and paint it on a 4×4″ square!! I do not paint! seriously! If it is not the walls of my house it is waaay out of my comfort zone, the fear of making a fool of myself was eased only by the whiskey cocktails…(San Remo @ Scarpetta’s) Stacie, on the other hand paints beautifully and jumped right in! Once painted, hang your piece on the grid. When the project was completed (about a week) Jason sent us a copy of the original: Sculpture by Jeff Koons titled, “Balloon Flower” and the interactive piece. All that to say, it was such a great and fun experience!!! Gonna do this at our next party! Oh, if you count the squares in the top row, I was #7. Don’t forget to make someone smile today!

Pop-up Wedding Chapel… Gotta love Las Vegas!

The Cosmopolitan's Pop-up Wedding Chapel

My husband heads to Las Vegas every year for business, the last 3 years I have tagged along with my partner in crime… Stacie, of “Gatherings by Stacie” (I love the look we get when he walks in with 2 women) although it is Vegas!  We stay in a time share that is like a mini apt. with a sweet little kitchen, living room/dinning room, and best of all maid service! Anyway, Stacie & I get caught up on work, rest and girl talk. Not necessarily in that order. This year we returned to one of our favorite spots, The Cosmopolitan, where we found The Pop-Up Wedding Chapel! What a brilliant idea! I know, just what Vegas needs is one more chapel… but this one is quite unique… legally binding, or not. They have 3 packages starting at $80, each complete with seat fillers, rings from the vintage vending machine,  tokens for the photo booth, Sofia Champagne and cake pops! Now what more do you need… well, maybe a Brooch Bouquet!  If you are heading to Las Vegas before the end of March (when they close down) do stop by… So fun!
