MacDonald is Epic. His work only gets better and more profound. He is the modern God Father of figurative art focusing on dance and dance related expression of the human form at its most dynamic and intense. He captures movement like no one I have ever seen.

Richard McDonald artwork is simply amazing. He captures angst and emotion and all of his creations. Even if you don't go in, you can wait outside of the collection enjoy the artwork through the glass walls. His sculptures speak volumes and are available for purchase. After you've had your fill with modern art masterpieces, head to the tables and slots... More

This gallery is filled with some of the most amazing sculptures. His work is not to be believed. You can wonder as much as you want and no one bothers you. His human body studies are incredible!

If I remember correctly, this is a gallery in the waiting area to see "O" at the Bellagio. If not, disregard this review. The work is mostly amazing sculptures of the bodies of Cirque de Soliel dancers, in exquisite detail. We visited before the area was crowded with theatre goers so we could really get a good look. The sculptures... More

Great sculpture and gallery. Very often the salespeople are standoffish so you may have to go up to them to get information (most of the time...). The art is very nice but very expensive, so be prepared for sticker shock if you are thinking about buying anything.

Incredible work. The guy is a genius. Try to see his sculpture of Nureyev. It used to be in his shop in Bellagio. That is now gone but you can see some beautiful work @ Bellagio near the poker room.

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

On three floors with plenty of displays and info. Tells it like it was with great photos and personal accounts. Some may find the pictures of the killings, that actually happened hard to cope with.

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.
