Springtime in Japan: New Conservatory display introduced

BELLAGIO – Guests of the resort are being invited to take a peaceful journey through a new Japanese-inspired display that is the first of its kind in the resort’s signature attraction.

The new exhibit – the first Japanese-themed display ever in the Bellagio Conservatory – was introduced during a ceremony Thursday morning with many members of the Japanese community in attendance, including the Honorary Consul General of Japan, Kathleen Blakely. The event began with a Japanese drum troupe performance and was followed by remarks from Bellagio President Randy Morton.

“Springtime in Japan is truly breathtaking and we are excited to share this extraordinary cultural experience with our guests from around the world,” said Mr. Morton. “After traveling more than 5,000 miles to study gardens in Tokyo and Kyoto, our horticulture and design teams created a dynamic interpretation of Japan’s enchanting spring season, featuring many of the culture’s most recognizable elements.” Read more of this post

A Gift From The Earth: New art installation at Bellagio



BELLAGIO – The Company’s newest public art installation is also its most massive. “A Gift From The Earth,” near the resort’s porte cochere, features more than 40 tons of solid rock.

The four gigantic stone pillars, created by Japanese master carver Masatoshi Izumi, have been installed just outside Bellagio’s main entrance, on the south side of the porte cochere. Each represents one of four elements: Wind, Fire, Water and Land. The collection is on loan from a private collector.

“Art and culture are integral to the Bellagio experience, with original works throughout the resort in addition to the rotating exhibits at the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art,” said Tarissa Tiberti, Executive Director of MGM Resorts’ Fine Art Collection. “The Izumi installation is a tremendous addition to this experience and is a beautiful representation of the authentic art forms within the Japanese culture.” READ MORE
