Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art Las Vegas

Back to Bellagio

Las Vegas, and the Southwestern U.S. in general, is not known for world-famous museums and galleries. That's why the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art stands out so much: in the cultural desert that is Vegas, a place to go and see the works of Van Gogh, Picasso, or Lichtenstein is like an oasis.

The Gallery showcases a new artist or group every six months or so. Sure it's not huge, but the modest size just serves to focus the attention more highly on the art itself. The one room that houses all the paintings, sculptures, or ceramics may surprise visitors by comprising the whole of the exhibit. But who among us has taken full advantage of the whole spectrum of offerings at the Chicago Museum of Fine Art, or the Smithsonian? We walk through these monsters, spending ten minutes at the first painting we see, five at the next, one at the next, and by the time we're walking out, footsore and brain-dead, we're sailing past Caillebottes and Monets saying things like: "That's too dark," "That's too light," or "That's just ugly. Why is her skin green?" At least, at the Bellagio, the 15 dollars we paid for admittance forces us to really search for the value layered throughout the twenty or thirty works of art.

Current exhibit: Figuratively speaking: A Survey of the Human Form.

Runs: May 1, 2010, through January 2011.

Artist(s): Andre Derain, Yoshitomo Nara, Roy Lichtenstein, Keith Haring, Nick Cave, Pablo Picasso, Chuck Close, Cindy Sherman, Tony Oursler, Fernand Leger, Alberto Giacometti, Joseph Cornell, Edward Degas, Milton Avery, Renoir, David Hockney, Barbara Kruger.
