The Venetian Las Vegas Presents LOVE, A New Art Installation By Laura Kimpton

THE VENETIAN LAS VEGAS PRESENTS LOVE, A NEW ART INSTALLATION BY LAURA KIMPTON

 The Venetian® Las Vegas presents LOVE, a larger than life installation in the Waterfall Atrium. Created by celebrated artist Laura Kimpton as part of her Monumental Word Series, the installation, perforated with bird-shaped stamps, spells LOVE in steel Ruby red letters that rise 12 feet tall and collectively span 36 feet across, creating a memorable experience.

“The LOVE installation is a perfect fit for our resort, larger than life, celebratory and optimistic in spirit and scale,” said Lisa Marchese, chief marketing officer of The Venetian Las Vegas. “Laura’s installation embodies beauty, power and simplicity in its meaning and presentation. We know guests will interact with the piece, share it with one another and hopefully, leave with a bit of awe and joy remembering that infectious Italian spirit that is the Venetian.”

Kimpton, who is known for her mixed media installations and sculpture, rose to distinction thanks to her large-scale art that first debuted at the 2009 Burning Man festival in Black Rock, Nevada. She draws from her desire to question traditional views on social interaction, invoking through her art a reaction and discussion which ultimately completes her projects. “LOVE” is one piece from Kimpton’s Monumental Word Series.

LOVE is about being free to love who you want, the way you want,” said artist Laura Kimpton. “The bird stamps in the letters represent being able to follow your dreams, which is the message that I hope will inspire people as they interact with the piece. Las Vegas is the city where people pursue their dreams, and this sculpture will act as a touchstone for this pursuit.”

Prior to being on display at The Venetian, LOVE was installed at the Life is Beautiful festival in downtown Las Vegas from Sept. 23-25, 2016. The piece will return to Life is Beautiful in 2017.

Cirque du Soleil® Returns to Their Roots at Life is Beautiful Music & Art Festival

CIRQUE DU SOLEIL® RETURNS TO THEIR ROOTS AT
LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL MUSIC & ART FESTIVAL

 

Live performances will take place throughout the day on Friday, Sept. 23

  

In a return to their roots, Cirque du Soleil will thrill the streets of Downtown Las Vegas at Life is Beautiful Music & Art Festival, bringing performers from all seven resident shows in Las Vegas to the festival footprint on Friday, Sept. 23. Similar to Cirque du Soleil’s humble beginnings in 1984, where artists and fans were face-to-face, the landmark live entertainment creator and Las Vegas Strip staple will dazzle with acrobatics, dance and even more surprises throughout the evening.

 

Cirque du Soleil is one of the most iconic elements of Las Vegas and their involvement over the last four years has helped Life is Beautiful become the diverse experience it is today,” said Justin Weniger, CEO of Life is Beautiful. “Not only do we have a multi-generational and multi-genre lineup, but we also offer the unique experience that is Cirque du Soleil, allowing us to blend the gap between music, art and performance, which is exactly what our festival is about.”

 

Life is Beautiful ticketholders will be treated to 30 minutes of live performances inside the festival grid every hour, occurring at 4:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m., 6:30 p.m., 7:30 p.m., 8:30 p.m. with a special finale at 9 p.m. 35 world-class performers from Michael Jackson ONE at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Mystère at Treasure Island, “O” at Bellagio Resort & Casino, Zumanity at New York-New York Hotel & Casino, KÀ at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, The Beatles™ LOVE™ at The Mirage Hotel & Casino and MINDFREAK® LIVE! at Luxor Hotel & Casino will astound fans as they dance, tumble and create memories for inspired crowds with performances rarely experienced at a festival.

 

Cirque du Soleil has shifted the landscape of what is possible in live entertainment, here in Las Vegas and all over the world, with shows that continue to push the boundaries of human performance and theatrical wonder,” said Pierre Parisien, senior director of show quality. “The story of our success will always start with street performance. The opportunity to engage with fans on an intimate level, just feet in front of our incredible artists, brings an exciting chance to partner with Life is Beautiful again and share the magic of Cirque with our community.”

 

Life is Beautiful brings Downtown Las Vegas to life for a three-night all-encompassing music, art, culinary and learning experience Sept. 23-25. Three-day and single-day tickets are still available for Life is Beautiful Music & Art Festival here. For highlights from last year’s festival, check out the Life is Beautiful 2015 Recap video.

The premier party of the year will showcase a pop up wedding chapel and fully ordained officiant to perform weddings and vow renewals for the first time in Black & White history.

Entertainers including The Perry Twins, Maren Wade, “Love is Love” by Legends in Concert, Pia Zadora, DJ Axis, Nick Ayler, The Sound Collage, Brandon Godfrey and Boiis will take the stage while steampunk-inspired decor from the International Special Events Society (ISES) transforms the venue.

The $50 GA ticket price also grants admission to the official after party at Piranha Nightclub and Temptation Sundays pool party at the Luxor the following day.

While the Black & White is an unforgettable festive atmosphere, AFAN Executive Director Antioco Carrillo wants guests to remember the evening still has a sobering purpose to fight HIV/AIDS and eradicate the stigma it carries in Southern Nevada.

“We want people to get dressed up, come let loose and have the time of their lives,” said Carrillo. “But at the same time, it’s important to remember the event is ultimately dedicated to raising funds for locals living with AIDS and sending a message of prevention.”

Tickets can be purchased at afanlv.org. $130 VIP tickets with early entry at 8 p.m. or VIP tables with four tickets for $600 are also available. Guests must be 21+ years old and black and white attire required for admission.

Life is Beautiful Announces National Our School is Beautiful Initiative with Communities In Schools of Nevada

Life is Beautiful Announces National Our School is Beautiful Initiative with Communities In Schools of Nevada

 

The team behind the internationally-acclaimed Life is Beautiful music, food, art and learning festival announced a new initiative, Our School is Beautiful, on Tuesday, Feb. 17. In collaboration with its inaugural partner, Communities in Schools of Nevada (CIS of Nevada), the Nevada affiliate of the nation’s leading dropout prevention program, Our School is Beautiful aims to empower at-risk students with pride in their schools, their community and in themselves.

 

“Life is Beautiful was created to make a positive impact on the communities in which we operate,” said Rehan Choudhry, founder of Life is Beautiful. “We aim to give people the tools and perspective needed to continue to see that life is beautiful and full of opportunity and hope. With Our School is Beautiful, we are working with incredible partners to focus our efforts on our Nevada children attending at-risk schools.”

 

At a private assembly held inside Las Vegas’ William H. “Bob” Bailey Middle School, more than 500 students gathered with Clark County School District (CCSD) staff and administration for a special video presentation to introduce the new initiative. The video recapped a day-long event that sought to remind students that they are not forgotten, they have potential and they are special, all while educating and empowering them. The day was elevated with participation from a variety of celebrities including chefs Rick Moonen and Bruce Bromberg, UFC fighter Miesha Tate, The Killers’ lead singer Brandon Flowers and GRAMMY-winning band Imagine Dragons.

 

“With the help of Life is Beautiful, students who face daily challenges were able to enjoy this special and magical event which planted the seed of hope in so many and reminded our students of their potential,” said Diane Fearon, chief executive officer of CIS of Nevada. “This event, combined with the reinforcement of the mentor relationship many students have with CIS of Nevada site coordinators at school every day provides great support and inspiration to low-income, high-risk students.”

 

“Nevada has the lowest-rated public education in America right now,” said Robert Reynolds of Reynolds Management and manager of Flowers. “That needs to change. I went to Bonanza. Brandon went to Chaparral. Like anyone who grew up here, we were happy to help.”

 

The concept for the initiative arose during dinner between Choudhry and Fearon. A perfect marriage between the mission of CIS of Nevada and the drive behind Life is Beautiful, Our School is Beautiful was born a mutually-beneficial fit. After 30 days of planning, the brainchild came to life when three at-risk CCSD schools had the experience of a lifetime.

 

“I knew we had to get involved in the effort as soon as Rehan and the Communities in Schools team told us the general concept of taking three at risk schools and helping turn them around,” said Mac Reynolds of Reynolds Management and manager of Imagine Dragons. “Dan [Reynolds, lead singer of Imagine Dragons] and I grew up in Las Vegas and attended public schools not too different from the ones we visited.  Having your own kids makes you realize just how important it is to foster an environment where they feel empowered and full of hope.  This program does just that.”

 

At Tuesday’s announcement, Bailey Middle School Principal Greg Cole, along with Choudhry, addressed the students before playing a 10-minute video that captured the day and explained the process behind and importance of Our School is Beautiful.

 

Beyond Las Vegas, the initiative aims to equip individuals in other cities with the tools and information they need to create similar events across the country.

THE D LAS VEGAS TO HOST “INSPIRED by the D” POP-UP SPACE AT LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL

Downtown Casino Hotel Invites Attendees to Hit the Beach, Be Creative and Spread Happiness

Embracing the whimsy and spirit of Life Is Beautiful, the D Las Vegas will host “INSPIRED by the D” – a pop-up space in the heart of the three-day festival in Downtown Las Vegas.

 

For the second year, the D will transform the intersection of Fremont and Seventh Streets (the site of City Center Motel) into an immersive experience that invites all festival-goers to participate in unique and inspired activities.

  • Life’s A Beach. Complete with volleyball, a DJ and 150 tons of sand, the D will bring the beach to the streets of Sin City. Guests are invited to ditch their troubles (and their shoes) and hang loose as they sip on freshly made juices and smoothies.

 

  • Take A Smile, Leave A Smile. Last year, festival attendees left their mark by contributing a personalized brick to a community wall, suggesting the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. This year, each visitor will have the opportunity to snap their photo in front of the wall to contribute to a massive photo collage commemorating the 2014 event. In return, participants will receive a photo and accompanying message with the goal of encouraging the practice of random acts of kindness towards fellow festival-goers.

 

  • Up In The Air. To inspire those beyond the gates of Life is Beautiful, guests can release messages of hope and happiness attached to red balloons* throughout each day. After the closing set each night, the D will illuminate the skies with a surprise display. the D’s resident entertainer and local favorite Frankie Scinta will host the experience.

 

*All released balloons are environmentally friendly and biodegradable.
