Each guestroom at Park MGM has its own collection of artwork providing guests with the sense of a personal gallery with photographs, mixed media paintings, and found objects that draw inspiration from far-flung travels, bygone eras and striking natural landscapes. The original artwork from commission artists—photographers Dimitri Coste and Clement Jolin, illustrator Alicia Galer, and mixed-media artist Beth Hoeckel—offer unique perspectives on Las Vegas and public parks.
Other decorative artwork can be found around the property in spaces. For example, the casino cage showcases paintings by Claire Basler, the pool promenade is lined with over-life size wall reliefs by Frank Plant, David Oliviera's wire sculptures are located in the high-rise elevator lobbies, and Richard Tuschman's imagery can be found in each guest room corridor.
David Plunkert – David Plunkert's illustrations have graced everything from major magazines and newspapers to recording labels and movie posters. Park MGM enlisted his talents to create a series of murals that explore the feminine side of the cow to captivate diners at Bavette's Steakhouse & Bar.
Park MGM's tribute to the South of France includes an extensive collection of works inspired by 1950s Provence, France. Showcasing a variety of mediums, Primrose features lithographs by Pierre Boncompain, photography by Jonas Hafner, abstract paintings by Caroline Denervaud, and ceramic work by Gesine Hackenberg. Original linocut prints from Pablo Picasso demonstrate his masterful treatment of bold composition, vibrant color and patterns. Harry Gruyaert's picnic photographs feature dramatic palettes and dense compositions, a trademark of his theatrical approach to mundane tasks and situations. Claude Viallat's serigraph hangs in the entrance to the restaurant, a prime example of his ingenious use of abstraction.
