Wandering through Resorts World Las Vegas’ new self-guided art tour is like going on a treasure hunt in an art gallery. Scattered throughout the property, an array of eclectic artwork awaits a curious art enthusiast.

The self-guided art tour offers guests a deeper look at their art collection consisting of both famed and local artists. With their cell phones, art aficionados learn about each artist and their creation through a sequence of QR codes. The added feature accentuates the property’s unique tech-savvy offerings. 

From modern pieces to historical fine-art, the art program showcases a variety of works including tea bag art, hologram pieces, vibrant sculptures and more. Artwork on the tour can be found in the hotel lobbies, on the casino floor, in the salon and other areas around the property. 

Pictures of the artwork offer a teaser of the tour, but art doesn’t feel the same when its seen through a screen. Each work embodies its own personality. While roaming Resorts World, here are some highlights of the collection.
