Higher Love



Marin-based artist Laura Kimpton is adding a little virtue to Sin City with the unveiling of her larger-than-life installation “Love” at The Venetian Las Vegas. Part of her Monumental Word series, this 5,100-pound art piece covered in perforated bird-shaped stamps spells LOVE in steel ruby-red letters that rise 12 feet tall and span 36 feet across. Kimpton is known for her mixed-media installations and sculptures that have appeared at Burning Man and the Life Is Beautiful festival in downtown Las Vegas. “Love is about being free to love who you want, the way you want,” she says. “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.” It remains to be seen what effects this art may have in the Marriage Capital of the World. The sculpture will remain at The Venetian until September 2017. venetian.com
