The sculptures of Richard MacDonald are highlighted next to the Cirque du Soleil theater. The sculptures echo the physical prowess and feats of the Cirque du Soleil, as well as capturing the occasional quirkiness of the Cirque du Soleil's entertainments. MacDonald's artwork explores the linkage of superbly honed athleticism used in conveying shared yet almost subliminal human experiences through surrealism,... More

Loved this free exhibition! The sculptures beautifully capture the mood of some of the O acrobats. Be sure to watch the video to learn more about Macdonald's work. In a word or two-beautiful and amazing! A wonderful learning experience for children and adults! This exhibit is located in the Bellagio directly outside the theater area.

If you ever go to Bellagio next to the ticket counter for Cirque du Soleile O, you will find the entrance to the theater. Inside you will find some amazing sculpture by Richard MacDonald based on the acrobats of O. It's free and very interesting to see the balance of each sculptures. So take a break from the casino and... More

Richard MacDonald is a sculptor, specializing in the human form. And not just any human, but awesome individuals who are at the peak of the performance game - think ballet dancers, Cirque performers, ... The work is incredible - I intended to stop by on the way to a photography exhibit but ended up spending two hours here, turning the... More

The video that is played at the entrance is a must-watch before savoring the fine works themselves. To really appreciate the final product, the video shows some of the works in progress and the crazy things that the subjects are require to do. If you think sitting still for a family portrait is annoying, try doing a single-arm stand with... More

Richard MacDonald casts the likes of the Cirque du Soleil performers in bronze. If you go to the "O" Theatre at the Bellagio, before you enter the threatre, you are able to see his work which is beautiful and amazing. It is also free to look 24/7. Don't miss it.

We took a stroll away from the Casinos and the strip and found this amazing gem! I felt as though the artist Richard MacDonald totally captured the spirit of his subjects in exquisite postures and dance positions. I was breathless with awe as if I was personally at a memorable performance. One needs to visit this gallery in City Center…and... More
