The Bellagio Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, is known for its luxury and prestige – a brand associated with the classic. This opulence is evident in its Gallery of Fine Arts, which has showcased exhibitions from esteemed collectors which include works from artists such as Andy Warhol and works from fine arts museums such as the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego and the MGM Resorts collection, to mention but a few.
The Gallery of Fine Arts at the Bellagio Casino and Hotel is run by executive director, Tartarissa Tiberti. According to her, Bellagio is dedicated to infusing art into the guests’ Las Vegas experience, a value which is expressed throughout the entire premise. Behind the reception desk hangs a Robert Rauschenberg, and the Prime displays a tapestry by Roy Lichtenstein. The restaurant, named after Picasso, also prominently displays his ceramics and paintings. Since its inception, the Bellagio’s Art Gallery has been a cultural appeal for travellers who seek a “deeper, educational Las Vegas experience.” It even attracts art appreciators who are visiting the city and may not have otherwise visited the casino and further enhances the brand’s perception of class and prestige.
The Bellagio Gallery of Fine Arts is a premium cultural destination on the Strip, attracting most of its patrons through tourism. According to Tartarissa Tibert, many residents also visit the Bellagio to appreciate great works from famous artists which are displayed there from time to time, due to the fact that it is conveniently located on the Las Vegas strip – an area they usually have to leave in order to get some downtime.
And what a show indeed! When the Bellagio curates an exhibition, they make it their mission to display a variety of installations which the aficionados can appreciate and the tourists can enjoy.
