The massive $11 billion dollar City Center in the heart of Las Vegas will be the most expensive privately funded construction project in U.S. History – a new mini city of casinos, luxury condos, theaters, strip clubs, restaurants, hotels, spas, and various amenities. Of that, “only” $40 million is reserved for a art installations by artists like Maya Lin, Jenny Holzer, Claes Oldenburg, Coosje Van Brugen, Nancy Rubens, Frank Stella, Henry Moore, Richard Long, and Doze Green.
We’re sure Doze (who recently showed with the CHIMERA project at Art Basel Week) doesn’t mind splitting that $40 million with the other artists, whatever the cut may be. His murals will be permanent and will greet riders of the tramway stations at the Monte Carlo and the Bellagio, so keep your eyes out next time you are in Sin City.
