The Artery at Superfrico® is like no other dining room in Las Vegas.
Since its beginnings in 2006, Spiegelworld has shared its stage with the work of leading contemporary visual artists. Curated by international art consultant Heather Harmon, The Artery’s salon-style gallery surrounds diners with pieces from Spiegelworld’s extensive collection and specially commissioned site-specific works by more than thirty artists. Even the walls, painted by muralist Lisa Stolist, are a work of art.
There are artworks commissioned over the years to commemorate each of Spiegelworld’s live stage shows, artworks to showcase Las Vegas’ leading local artists, and artworks from Spiegelworld’s private collection of significant works from across the USA, Australia and around the world.
Superfrico’s early development—its attitude, look, feel and philosophy—was inspired by one such commission, Psycho Pop Party by Adehla Lee, which is represented on the lightbox installation at the kitchen entrance to the restaurant.
Also look out for Mark Wagner’s mind-blowing collage made from hundreds of deconstructed US dollar bills, New York City pop artist Sucklord’s iconic action figures inspired by the characters of Spiegelworld’s show Opium, Holly Lay’s sexy Venus made from latch hook yarn, neon installations by Leticia Maldonado and Chelsea Culprit, a digital reincarnation of Elvis Presley by Gabriel Barcia-Colombo, and treasures from legendary Australian artists Jeffrey Smart, Peter Booth and Mirka Mora.
