“Fit to be Tied” and “Steam Pump” - The Big Shoes

When multimedia artist Roark Gourley fashioned “Fit to be Tied” known as the “big pink shoe” (2010), a giant candy apple pink high-heel that would sit inside the Cosmopolitan, he had no idea he was creating one of the biggest photo opportunities on the Las Vegas Strip. “Steam Pump” is the other “big black shoe” Roark created for the Cosmopolitan.
