Art on Display in Casinos


Let’s be honest, when we think casinos, we think Vegas. That’s just how it is. Although there are a number of very popular gambling resorts located all over the globe, the one we find ourselves drawn to again and again is Las Vegas. Today we’re taking a slightly different look at casinos, unlike many online casinos such as the ones at bettingsites, traditional physical casinos offer more than just a place to bet or gamble. Today, we’re going to be looking at the art on display in casinos. Now, when we say art, we don’t mean a cheap canvas purchased at the local bargain shop in a seedy casino down some back alley. When we talk about the art on display in casinos, we mean the multi-billion dollars’ worth of art located in some of the world’s most popular casinos. Here’s a more detailed look. Art lovers in particular, should find this very informative.

The Hippodrome casino

Our first look at art on display in casinos doesn’t take us into the desert. In fact, it doesn’t even take us out of the UK. Our first foray into the world of art on display in casinos takes us to London. Specifically, it takes us to the Hippodrome casino in London. Situated on the corner of Leicester Square, the Hippodrome Casino is one of London’s most famous casinos and is a must for any gamblers who happen to be in the area. The Hippodrome has served as many things over the years, including a circus, and a rave. Purchased in 2009, the new owners commissioned professional artists to create several pieces of art to surround the main floor. Digital artist-in-residence Thomas D Gray was hired to create 57 panel digital artwork display and the results were stunning.

Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art

When you think of Vegas, you can’t help but think of the Bellagio. The Bellagio gallery of fine art is located within the Bellagio hotel and casino. It is a stark contrast to the bright lights and the hustle and bustle of Vegas. The Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art offers a relaxing retreat from the casinos. As it is an art gallery we couldn’t possibly list each piece as we’d be here all day. One piece which is worth mentioning however, is Yayoi Kasuma’s Infinity Mirrored Room. This amazing piece of art allowed visitors to the gallery to stand in a mirrored room in the dark, and observe a series of glowing and colourful lights which, thanks to the optical illusion of the infinity mirror, appeared to stretch on forever and forever.

The Luxor Hotel and Casino

The Luxor Hotel and Casino had arguably the most-famous art display in the world at one point. Why? Because it displayed over 250 artefacts retrieved from the sunken wreckage of a little-known ship by the name of the HMS Titanic. This display attracted art lovers from all over the globe and is still considered to be one of the world’s most impressive art displays. The aim of the display was to recreate the grandeur and splendour of the doomed ship before it sank.
