Sights in the Silver State: Discovering Contemporary Exhibits at the Las Vegas Palms Casino
Searching for something breathtaking? Head to Las Vegas and discover some of the city’s finest art at the Palms Casino.

When you think fine art, casinos generally aren’t the first places you imagine. However, the Palms Casino in Las Vegas aims to change that. With walls adorned with brilliant displays by respected artists from around the world, this venue is working to bring a whole new level of creative experience to its patrons.

What to Expect at the Palms Casino
Having recently undergone a massive $620 million renovation, the Palms now boasts an entirely new visual vibe. Here you’ll find a focus on fresh ideas and modern artists, with casino owners Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta having donated many pieces from their private collection to achieve the effect. The result is a maze of masterpieces, featuring works by over 30 different creators.

Upon entering the casino, visitors are greeted by a cheery, lettered collaboration piece by neon whiz Olivia Steele and photographer Keegan Gibbs. Venturing further in, the art becomes more poignant. Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat form a duo of graffitied greatness throughout the venue, while massive sculptures by KAWS and other masters pepper the floors.

The main casino bar is centered around Damien Hirst’s The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living, an eerie yet beautiful tiger shark preserved in formaldehyde. Hirst features prominently throughout the venue and also helped to design the most expensive room in the casino’s hotel: the $200,000 per-weekend Empathy Suite.

No matter your style or aesthetic preferences, the art at the Palms is sure to impress. You’ll find works here ranging from bright and colorful to darkly immersive, all showcasing the range of tastes from owners to managers to clientele.

Making the Most of Your Vegas Trip
While the art in Vegas is exceptional, some may hope to partake in additional excitement during their visit. Casino gaming is also wildly popular in the Silver State, so why not try your hand at cards while you’re here? Take to the tables in the Palms for a few rounds, or play blackjack online with any number of reputable providers.

Once you’ve had your fill of fun and games, it’s time to try the cuisine in Vegas. The fine-dining scene here is nothing short of extraordinary and discerning travelers can get started right at the Palms. Scotch 80 Prime is a gourmand’s dream, serving up succulent steak and some of the world’s rarest whiskies, which you can enjoy within view of several Basquiat canvasses.

For evening entertainment, a nightcap at the Apex Rooftop Bar & Lounge never disappoints. Enjoy the stunning Vegas skyline as you sip a handcrafted cocktail, or head down to the Pearl Theatre for an intimate musical performance in a showstopping venue.

Other Art Exhibits to Enjoy in Vegas
