Richard MacDonald, Cirque Sculptor
I went to Vegas over the weekend to relax with a couple girlfriends and the highlight of my trip was seeing the following exhibit at the Bellagio hotel. It is a permanent gallery of California based sculptor, Richard MacDonald's work. He created incredible bronze casts of dancers and aerialists from Cirque du Soleil.
I love seeing the world of fine-art and aerial arts come together. Upon walking in, I was instantly reminded of Rodin. Lots of movement, weightlessness and poise. Needless to say, I spent quite a bit of time just taking photos. 🙂 I told the curators that I was both a poler as well as an artist and they were more than happy to help turn the sculptures around so we could admire them from all sides.
