STREET LIFE///DOZE GREEN GOES PUBLIC WITH “SODDOM & GOMORRAH” IN LAS VEGAS
The architectural car crash that is LAS VEGAS’ new CITY CENTER complex, a staggeringly huge 16,797,000 square feet complex on 76 acres on the Las Vegas Strip is literally the largest privately funded construction project in the history of the United States. The site was formerly occupied by the Boardwalk Hotel and Casino, the Bellagio employee parking lot, and several standalone commercial structures and is bordered by the Monte Carlo Resort, the Bellagio, and The Cosmopolitan Towers. It cost more than $11 billion to construct and of that princely sum, a mere $40 million was set aside to commission new public art. Luckily, the crew that received a paycheck on that commission included such artists as Claes Oldenburg, Frank Stella, Maya Lin, Henry Moore, and Jenny Holzer, to name a few. Notable among those “few,” was Supertouch buddy DOZE GREEN whose appropriately titled “Soddom & Gomorrah” mural greets visitors arriving at the Monte Carlo and Bellagio people mover stations.
