Mirage Unveils $40 Million Fine Art Program

MGM Mirage recently unveiled initial plans for CityCenter’s $40 million Fine Art Program. Opening in late 2009, CityCenter will feature works by acclaimed artists including Maya Lin, Jenny Holzer, Nancy Rubins, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, Frank Stella, Henry Moore and Richard Long.

The CityCenter Fine Art Program will feature numerous sculptures and fine art installations in both interior and exterior locations, transforming CityCenter into a living museum.

CityCenter, a joint venture of MGM Mirage and Dubai World, will open in late 2009. The more than $8 billion development combines approximately 2,600 private residences; two 400-room non-gaming boutique hotels; Aria, a 61-story, 4,000-room resort casino; and a 500,000-square-foot retail and entertainment district.
