Last month, local artist Dana Oldfather
completed her second commission for the MGM Resorts International's Aria Hotel and Casino
in Las Vegas. The work consists of two large pieces, Reflexive 1 and 2,
which measure roughly 10 ½ by 12 feet each. She completed her previous commission
for the hospitality giant in 2013 when she was seven months pregnant.
"I'm sure glad it went well because it provided the opportunity to make the largest paintings I have every made," says Oldfather of this second commission. She finished both Reflexive
pieces on February 13 then prepared them for shipping by dismantling and rolling them. The works will eventually unfurl in the resort's exclusive Sky Suites Lounge.
"It's been a long process," says Oldfather, "about two months of planning, building and ordering, and four months of painting. I am so thankful for my family and all the help they provided so that this project would be possible."
