NOTEWORTHY ARTWORK

The following is a list of noteworthy art pieces found at Resorts World Las Vegas along with their descriptions and where they are located within the resort:

Cloned Bulldog with Pet Bottle by William Sweetlove

Creating each clone to be identical, Sweetlove made a limited run of each animal. Resorts World Las Vegas has two displayed in the Casino. By adoring his cloned animals with Pet Bottles, Sweetlove is experimenting with the idea that available drinking water would become extremely difficult to find. This would make the collection of water very important and reusing a previously discarded item would be of vital importance in his perceived trajectory of the world. Sweetlove did passed away before, in America at least, reusable water bottles and tumblers have become trendy accessories.

Donuts by Jaeyong Kim

Kim began experimenting with Donuts in his work when exploring with the concept of greed. Later continuing this work as a study of color theory, challenging himself to use color since as a color-blind artist Kim had previously scared away from using color before.
