Opening in 1998, the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art was the first gallery to bring true fine art to the Las Vegas strip and used to boast lines all the way around to the pool.
Coming off the heels of their exhibition, "Faberge Revealed: Jeweler to the Czars," the BGFA presents "Picasso: Creatures and Creativity," on view July 3, 2015-Jan. 10, 2016. Guests will be able to see works from the famed artist that explore the mediums of painting, linocut, and lithograph that were created across a considerable span of the 20th century, from the 1930s-1970s.
“These works showcase Picasso's extraordinary ability to capture the human form with his use of line, movement, and color. Highlighting his ability to create portraits that vary from realism to the highly abstract, the exhibition reveals Picasso’s evolution as an artist over a 40-year span,” according to exhibit promotional materials.
The gallery hours are 10:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m. seven days a week with the last admissions at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $19 and the gallery does not offer facilities to store strollers, packages or other personal articles during your visit so drop off any personal belongings at Bellagio's bell desk.
Also, on the second Tuesday of each month, the BGFA presents "Art & Wine: A Perfect Pairing." This series presents select pieces of art each month as well as beverage selections that have ranged from champagne to tequila and even beer, depending on the presented artwork. During the event, guests enjoy an interactive wine and art discussion by Jason Smith and Tarissa Tiberti beginning at 6 p.m.
While you are at the Bellagio, don’t miss the Dale Chihuly glass sculpture, "Fiori di Como" in the main lobby, sculptor Masatoshi Izumi’s "A Gift From the Earth," located outside the entrance to the resort. The Conservatory & Botanical Gardens is another can't miss attraction, with displays that change out seasonally and for the holidays.
