Tassels on Parade

If you’re still sad about missing Dita Von Teese’s recent burlesque show at House of Blues, we have your antidote in spades … and feathers and sequins. On May 31-June 3, the Orleans will host the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend. The main attraction is four nights of burlesque performances, including the Tournament of Tease (2011’s reigning Queen of Burlesque Miss Indigo Blue is pictured) and the 55th annual Titans of Tease reunion, which features dancers from the 1940s-’70s. Additionally, the weekend offers a variety of daytime events, including a special edition of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School; a Pinup Photo Safari; a Poolside Fashion Show; and, for the literary minded, Naked Girls Reading. Tickets for the weekend and to individual events are available at BurlesqueHall.com and OrleansCasino.com/entertain.

Stephen Hendee is best known in Las Vegas for the public artwork “Monument to the Simulacrum,” a steel-and-acrylic sculpture lodged in Centennial Plaza at Fourth Street and Lewis Avenue, adjacent to the Historic Fifth Street School. Hendee rendered the jagged, LED-iridescent mountain with 3-D-modeling software, making it at once futuristic and ancient, dystopian and timeless. The artist returns to Vegas this week to unveil a new site-specific installation, “The Pinpoint Remains,” at the Clark County Government Center Rotunda Gallery.
