Resorts World Las Vegas boasts a diverse collection of art, featuring works created by both renowned and local artists along with a mix of modern and historical fine-art pieces. The resort’s design team and art consultants underwent an extensive selection process to create a dynamic and experiential program designed to surprise and delight guests. From Chinese-inspired paintings on display in the Crockfords Lobby to larger-than-life sculptures and murals within the casino area, those visiting Resorts World Las Vegas will be stunned with a collection of magnificent art pieces displayed at every corner.
“Our team took a unique approach when curating the art program for Resorts World Las Vegas, selecting pieces not just to stick to a theme, but rather choosing the most interactive, intriguing artwork that would add an exciting element to the overall resort experience,” said Kara Siffermann, Resorts World Las Vegas Vice President of Design and Construction. “We hope this self-guided tour can educate our guests on the property’s incredible design and help them understand what makes these pieces so special.”
