MGM Resorts International, one of the world's leading hospitality companies, has announced a partnership with Art Basel in Miami Beach. MGM Resorts will serve as an official partner for the public sector of Art Basel's 15th edition in Miami Beach this year. The public sector will feature 20 artists and be on view in Miami Beach's Collins Park from Wednesday, November 30th through Sunday, December 4th.

"Art Basel is the preeminent art show in the country and we are privileged to be the Public sector's first partner in support of these tremendous works of art," said Jim Murren, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MGM Resorts International. "MGM Resorts recognizes the power art has to be transformative and we are committed to engaging with public art not only within our resorts but at important events such as Art Basel."

Throughout the years, MGM Resorts has developed a tremendous collection of art and culture within the company's distinctive world-class brands, such as Bellagio, MGM Grand, and Mandalay Bay. When ARIA opened in 2009, the resort featured the first major permanent collection of art in Las Vegas integrated into a public space. Today, it is considered one of the world's largest and most ambitious corporate art collections in existence.

You can find works by Nick Cave, Isa Genzken, David Hockney, Jenny Holzer, Maya Lin, Richard Long, Henry Moore, Claes Oldenburg, Pablo Picasso, Robert Rauschenberg, Nancy Rubins, Frank Stella, James Turrell and Andy Warhol featured within MGM Resorts.

MGM Resorts has also recently collaborated with the Nevada Museum of Art and Art Production Fund to sponsor Ugo Rondinone's Seven Magic Mountains, one of the largest land-based art installations to be completed in over 40 years. This one-of-a-kind, colorful artwork will be on display in the Nevada desert through May 2018.

MGM National Harbor will open in Maryland on Thursday, December 8th. The MGM National Harbor Heritage Collection, inspired by the Capital Region's rich culture and history, will feature several distinguished artists, including Chul Hyun Ahn, Alice Aycock, Margaret Boozer, John Dreyfuss, Sam Gilliam, John Safer and Liao Yibai. A newly commissioned large-scale sculpture was also created with found objects and industrial artifacts by musician and artist, Bob Dylan. It will be a very memorable collection.

Art Basel Miami Beach is located at Miami Beach Convention Center, 1901 Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach, FL. To learn more, visit www.artbasel.com.
