This art gallery was the first of its kind on the Strip when it opened in 1998. Today, it continues to showcase world-class fine art, from Monet to Andy Warhol. It's a must-see for any art enthusiasts, especially because of its central location on the Strip.

Want to experience something a bit more cultural amidst the throbbing neon distraction of the Vegas Strip? The Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art, within the cavernous halls of the casino lobby, might be just the thing. Your experience depends wholly on whatever is being exhibited here: I saw a stunning Ansel Adams exhibit as well as a wholly disappointing collection of Picasso's pottery. At $15 admission, it's a bit pricey for a gallery this small (then again, this IS Vegas), but can provide a welcome escape from the world of vice, if only for an hour or so.

When we went, there was an exhibition called Classic Contemporary: Lichtenstein, Warhol and Friends, displaying paintings and sculptures from the Museum of Art in San Diego. The works were pop art, minimalism and abstract impressionism by Andy Warhol, Frank Stella, Ellsworth Kelly, Sol LeWitt, Roy Lichtenstein, Ed Ruscha, Hans Hofmann and Clyfford Still. The pieces were fairly typical of each artist’s work.
Admission, which included an audio guide, was $15 and $12 for students. Since the total number of pieces in the exhibit was 15, at a dollar a piece, that works out to be one of the more expensive exhibits I have ever paid for. The Met in New York, by contrast suggests $20 for admission and $10 for students and if paying by the piece on display, would cost thousands.

It's not the Met, but it does have a reputable collection. I was surprised since it's right on the strip, but there were a couple of really famous paintings in there, and it was a nice break from all the hype on the strip. The Bellagio has that way of bringing a little bit of class to an area that is mostly classless--sorry Vegas strip, but it's true. However, you go to Vegas for Vegas experiences, so this is a short stop on an otherwise decadent trip.

The Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art is small and in any other big city, $15 for a well presented, but small Monet exhibition might not be worth the time or expense. Yet after walking up and down the Strip for a couple hours and repeatedly reminding myself of why I'm not a Las Vegas type of guy, this Gallery was a welcome and peaceful respite. With the audio guide in my ear, I enjoyed the overwrought explanations and wandered back and forth as I actually tried to learn something. It was an enjoyable time, and I was actually sorry that I had to go back and brave the happy hordes again.

Steve Wynn's passion for art is apparent throughout the Bellagio and visitors can take it one step further and visit the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art. Although the gallery initially housed Steve Wynn's personal art collection, now the gallery rotates art exhibits with the help of museums, galleries and private collectors.

Unless you planning on an art theft caper, skip it. The only funny thing about Vegas art was when Steve Wynn was showing the Picasso painting, called "Le Reve" ("The Dream"), to guests in his office at Wynn Las Vegas when he struck the painting with his right elbow leaving a silver dollar sized hole.
