The Art of Las Vegas

By Chris Boyle

Tulips / Jeff KoonsLuxury hotelier Steve Wynn is well-known as one of the world’s pre-eminent art collectors.

What may not be so well-known is his low-key sharing of pieces from Wynn Resorts’ holdings throughout the elegant Wynn and Encore Hotels: He carefully selects and displays significant works, many unlabeled and unhyped.

Jeff Koons’s dramatic Tulips greets show attendees as they enter the Wynn Theater for the nightly performance of Le Reve.

At the other end of the artistic spectrum, an original wooden chandelier by architect/designer Gustav Eiffel hangs unannounced at the entrance to the Terrace Pointe Cafe.

Works by sculptor Timothy Horn, experimental painter Nellie King Solomon, South American artist Fernando Botero and other innovators can be found throughout the properties’ public areas.

While there is no formal art tour, base your creative explorations out of one of the resort’s calm and distinctly un-Vegas-y, 2,500-square-foot Fairway Villas ($2,500 nightly).

Lose yourself in the art, by all means, but don’t forget to take advantage of the Strip’s best high-stakes gaming and pulse-pounding nightlife, as well.
