Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art Extends

A??: Afro Frequencies Exhibit Through May 30

LAS VEGAS (April 14, 2022) – MGM Resorts Art & Culture announced today it will extend its current exhibit, A??: Afro Frequencies, at Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art for guests to enjoy through Monday, May 30.

A??: Afro Frequencies is a multi-sensory digital art exhibition presented by ARTECHOUSE in collaboration with Afro-Surrealist visual artist Vince Fraser and poet ursula rucker.

Designed around the Yoruban philosophy of a?? (pronounced ah-shay), meaning our power to exact change, A??: Afro Frequencies celebrates the historical, social and cultural aspects of the Black experience through the artists’ lens, brought to life in a digital interactive context.

The exhibition features 14 distinct encounters, each of which immerses the visitor in understandings of rebirth, bringing historical frameworks to life. For instance, tribal masks are doorways into concepts beyond the realm of the everyday, with each tribe in Africa having its own distinct traditional style and meaning.

A??: Afro Frequencies reflects MGM Resorts’ commitment to reshaping and diversifying its fine art collection as a vehicle for providing a platform for underrepresented voices including women, artists of color and the LGBTQIA+ community.

A??: Afro Frequencies is on view daily at Bellagio through May 30, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Last admissions sold 30 minutes prior to closing.

Tickets are $18 for adults; $16 for Nevada residents; and $15 seniors 65 and older, students, teachers and military with valid ID. Children 5 and younger are free.

For additional information, call (702) 693-7871 or (877) 957-9777, or visit bellagio.com/bgfa.
