The Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art holds these special events the second Wednesday of every month and you are able to enjoy the gallery in a completely different way. You get to ask questions about the art as well as get involved in conversations with other people who are just as curious about the pieces and the wine as you are. The best part is that the event is very approachable for the non-expert. If you don't know your way around wine or art this is perfect because you can ask any question and get a real answer from a couple of well informed professionals.
The evening begins with a tasting of the wines and you get to bend the ear of Jason Smith, Director of Wine and Master Sommelier at the Bellagio. Later in the evening you'll get an opportunity to walk around the gallery as Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art (BGFA) Director Tarissa Tiberti discusses the pieces and Jason Smith explains his pairings made from the Bellagio wine cellar.
Ultimately, you learn far more about the artwork and you'll expand your palate at the same time.
If you're like me you try to guess what you would have paired with each piece of artwork. Would it be Pabst Blue Ribbon or Jack Daniels or maybe a Barolo from that special place in Piedmonte? So much fun and a perfect date night in Las Vegas.
Through October 27, 2013, "Warhol Out West" is on display feature over 50 pieces of work that depict Andy Warhol's idea of all things Western.

Seeking more art in Las Vegas? There are plenty of opportunities to appreciate art in Las Vegas. Make sure to walk around CityCenter and see their public art on display through the property. My favorite is the Jenny Holzer piece but you might fall for the Nancy Rubins' piece because it is so massive in scale. Also walk next door to the Cosmopolitan Hotel and see WALLWORKS: Garage Art at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas .
