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

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 is a world renowned sculptor. The detail in his work makes it life-like. The exhibit features Cirque du Soleil performers. Breathtaking work and well worth the visit.

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

MacDonald has two exhibition galleries in Las Vegas - one in City Center and one in Bellagio. They are not advertised or easy to find, so ask your concierge. As for the art, Richard MacDonald focuses his immense talent in bronze sculpture on scenes and performers from Cirque du Soliel and the ballet dancers from the Royal Academy of Dance,... More

I stumbled across this amazing exhibit as I was wandering through the Bellagio. The art is outstanding, like nothing I have seen before from a contemporary artist. The fact that many of the pieces are of Cirque performers probably causes some folk to discount the value of the collection, but not all of the pieces are Cirque-related. (Even if they... More

Beautiful exhibit at the Bellagio Hotel, well worth a visit, especially if you like figurative art. Richard Macdonald's work is displayed next to the Cirque de Soleil "O" theatre at the Bellagio theatre, and in off-hours, you can see the exhibit for free.
