7 of the Most Popular Art Attractions in Las Vegas

Although it is known internationally for its dazzling casinos and desert climate, Las Vegas is also a city that has its fair share of cultural artefacts to attract visitors.
Art aficionados will be particularly pleased to learn that there are a host of popular attractions that focus on their particular passion, so here is a quick rundown of just seven of the biggest artistic hotspots in Sin City.

Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art
With amazing exhibitions hosting home-grown talent, international stars and up-and-coming artists alike, the Marjorie Barrick Museum is one of Nevada’s premier venues for innovative modern works as well as classic and even indigenous pieces.

Also, because it is located on the campus of the University of Nevada, you can visit it without having to pay a penny. It is definitely worth booking a ticket ahead of time, to avoid disappointment, but of course there will be no charge for this, so there is no excuse not to.

The Neon Museum
The bright lights of Las Vegas are always gleaming, and during the night they bathe the Strip in their glow, as well as inspiring many of the best USA online casino sites at roulettesites.org to reflect this neon-drenched aesthetic in their designs.

There is no doubting the artistic and cultural importance of all the neon signs that have graced the city over the decades, and the Neon Museum aims to collect and preserve a whole host of electrified urban art that might otherwise have been discarded and destroyed.

Tours of the museum help to paint a picture of Las Vegas’ storied past, as well as hinting at what the future might hold as technologies and tastes evolve.

Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art
If you want to see world famous artworks without venturing too far from the casino floor, then a trip to the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art, housed within the opulence of the Bellagio resort itself, should definitely be added to your itinerary.

Creations from greats such as Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol have graced the walls of this gallery, and while there is a small charge for admission, it is well worth the price of entry if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the casino experience and take stock in the presence of true genius.

Lou Ruvo Center
While some attractions are all about what’s inside, the draw here is the amazing architecture on show on the outside.

Designed by the legendary Frank Gehry, the building is a weird, warped, wonderful work of genius that glints and glimmers in the heat of the sun as its titanium-clad exterior seems to be in the process of melting away.

It is possible to pre-book tours of the Lou Ruvo Center’s interior, where there are also artworks dotted about the place. But even if you just admire it from the street, it should send shivers down your spine.

P3 Studio at The Cosmopolitan
A regular turnover of artists in residence make their mark on P3 Studio, a small but perfectly formed hub within the Cosmopolitan casino that actually lets you see the creative specialists plying their trade within its glass-windowed walls.

The experience of watching artists in the process of making works is intriguing in its own right, but you can also head inside and interact with them in person if you wish, which almost makes it a collaborative setup, or at least one which demystifies fine art for members of the public.

There is no admission charge to pay, and over the last decade the Cosmopolitan has managed to establish itself as one of the city’s best new hotels, so if you love art then you could do worse than to make this your base of operations for an extended stay in Las Vegas.

ARIA Fine Art Collection
Another casino venue that has chosen to embrace the finer things in life with a collection of art, ARIA’s gallery has sculptures from Henry Moore, as well as exhibits and installations from the likes of Maya Lin, James Turrell and many more besides.

A free walking tour is available throughout the week, so if you are visiting Vegas on a budget, stop by and see something amazing.

Skye Art Gallery
Tucked away in the cavernous interior of Caesars Palace, this gallery is especially well suited to fans of pop art, and features works from established names as well as newcomers to the scene.

All of this goes to prove that Las Vegas has a lot to offer art lovers, so you can plan an entire trip around just seeing its galleries.
