The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas in partnership with Art Production Fund is pleased to announce its March Artist-in-Residence, The Bumbys who’ll bring their typewriters and charming wit to P3 Studio March 8 - April 1.
The Bumbys, individually known as Gill & Jill Bumby, are an anonymous New York performance artist duo who provide typewritten “Fair and Honest Appraisals of Your Appearance.” It’s as simple as it sounds – you stand front and center and they type a personalized assessment of how they think you look, complete with a number rating on a scale of 1 to 10. The Bumbys will also be collaborating with guest artists throughout the residency, who will customize typewriters that will be become part of the experience.
Featured in the New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue Italia, CBS News and many other distinguished outlets for their quirky and objective interpretations of everyday citizens, the Bumbys will undoubtedly be a hit in P3 Studio.
Stop by and enjoy The Bumbys experience from 6-11PM Thursday through Sunday and get your own “Fair and Honest Appraisal of Your Appearance” on Thursdays from 7-8PM, Fridays from 8-9PM, Saturdays from 8-10PM and Sundays from 7-8PM.
