Over 50 bronze sculptures of Richard MacDonald along with original drawings, serigraphs and lithographs featuring circus and performance artists are permanently exhibited and sold in the newly renovated “O” Theatre lobby at Bellagio.
The gallery is born out of a relationship between Guy Laliberté, Founder of Cirque du Soleil, and Richard MacDonald, a master of figurative sculpture. MacDonald feels that he and Laliberté are “similar in life long creative goals.” His work focuses on the spectrum of performing life, capturing a fleeting moment in time and immortalizing the grace, strength, joy and discipline of dancers and acrobats. His work shares the creativity and imagination that fuels Cirque du Soleil and conveys MacDonald’s sense of energy and passion.
“The art of Richard MacDonald reveals the infinite beauty of the human body. The characters he creates are playing forever in the theatre of life,” says Guy Laliberté.
The gallery is open to the public from 10 am – 11 pm daily.
