CAN AN URBAN DESTINATION BE A WORK OF ART?
To create a truly unique urban destination, CityCenter will populate the public spaces with one of the largest and most ambitious corporate art programs in the world. To complement the world-class architecture, CityCenter will present a Fine Art Collection befitting the world’s most exceptional resort destination.
A roster of internationally renowned fine artists from the 20th and 21st century has been selected to exhibit their works. Some are existing pieces, carefully chosen for their artistic value and cultural significance; others are site-specific installations for which the artist has been invited to command their artistic vision over the space. The Fine Art Collection will bring these contemporary masterpieces to CityCenter, stransforming the city into a living, breathing museum, formed of works as iconic as the city itself.
In a variety of settings, flamboyant and intimate, serene and high-energy, each piece has been selected specifically for the space in which it resides, evoking the personality of its surroundings. At every level of the guest experience, the artwork has been paired with CityCenter’s unique architecture to create an exceptional sensory journey and present the works in a way never before seen. Whether contemplating the view from your window, coming face-to-face with a contemporary masterpiece or simply immersing yourself in the life of its public spaces, you are invited to look closely, feel deeply and discover something new with every encounter-as a great work of art is bound to do.
PARTICIPATING ARTISTS INCLUDE: MAYA LIN, JENNY HOLZER, NANCY RUBINS, RICHARD LONG, CLAES OLDENBURG & COOSJE VAN BRUGGEN, FRANK STELLA, AND HENRY MOORE.
