It is well known that there’s plenty to do in Las Vegas. Scratch that—that there’s plenty to do in Las Vegas is an understatement. The City of Sin’s very existence demands that it stay atop of current trends in entertainment. Some of these trends, however, are as timeless as entertainment itself. Classic art gallery viewing, for example, is among them. The best instance of this can be viewed in Bellagio’s Fine Art Gallery.
The Strip doesn’t usually beckon images of sipping champagne while wandering through the works of some of the world’s most venerated artists, but this is exactly what Bellagio’s designers had in mind when they constructed the Bellagio Art Gallery. Definitely an activity for the art lover, the museum collection is small, but potent. Exhibits include visiting exhibits (currently Claude Monet: Impressions of Light) and permanent collections, while in the entrance to the Bellagio lies a hanging sculpture by famed glassblower Dale Chihuly.
Not just a rich-man’s collection, the museum actively participates with other museums to continually offer visitors something new to see and experience. If you’re bored with the usual offerings of Las Vegas, consider the museum scene a great way to explore the extraordinary.
Both a visual and mental experience, the Bellagio Art Gallery should be on any art-lovers list.
