Along with its famous fountains, the conservatory, high-end shopping, world-class restaurants and luxurious accommodations, the Bellagio is also home to the Gallery of Fine Art. Every year the gallery features a different exhibit, showcasing some of the most famous artists from around the world.
Now though Oct. 27, 2013, the Gallery of Fine Art at the Bellagio presents "Warhol Out West" showcases 56 of Andy Warhol's works including paintings, sculptures, photographs, screen prints and wallpaper. The exhibit includes Warhol's 1960s paintings of celebrities and consumer products; the 1980s advertisement series; the "Double Elvis" painting; and his rarely seen "Cowboys and Indians" series.
"Our exhibit at Bellagio will be the only comprehensive Andy Warhol collection in the United States outside of his namesake museum in Pittsburgh and we recognize what a tremendous honor this is for our city," said Tarissa Tiberti, executive director of BGFA. "Everywhere you look in Las Vegas, you can see the impact of Warhol's creative genius and it is remarkable how his life and art continues to transcend generations."
Eric Shiner, director of The Andy Warhol Museum, said, "We hope visitors to the gallery think about the relationship of the images in front of them with the landscape of Las Vegas, from the kitsch to the fabulous and everything in between. As Las Vegas is key to understanding America, there is no better place than Bellagio for us to share our Andy Warhol artworks. Whether Elvis, Liz, Campbell's Soup or a Brillo Box, Warhol's subjects represent America in all of its many guises."
