Art Vegas - a 2020 Vision
Believe it or not, the entertainment capital of the world is increasingly being recognised for showcasing world-class art – whether on The Strip or the streets of Downtown, in secluded galleries or in the showiest of resorts. The longstanding Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art and the MGM resort are still undeniable anchors for traditional art in Las Vegas, but today the once edgy Arts district has the city’s highest concentration of galleries.
If you feel like a different kind of Las Vegas trip, you can enjoy street art and murals splashed all over Downtown or, for a staggering $100,000 a night, sleep with art by Damien Hirst at The Empathy Suite at Palms. Clark County Government Center and the Nevada Museum of Art both beautifully celebrate the natural beauty of the desert landscape, the definitive creation surrounding Las Vegas. It is just part of an ever changing vision for the city in 2020.
