WORLD-RENOWNED LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHER JEFF MITCHUM UNVEILS NEW GALLERY AT MGM GRAND, LAS VEGAS

10/16/2013

LAS VEGAS, May 23, 2013 – One of the most celebrated nature photographers of this generation, Jeff Mitchum, brings his vision and inspiration to MGM Grand with the opening of his second Las Vegas gallery on Thursday, July 4. The 4,000-square-foot, glass-enclosed Jeff Mitchum Gallery at MGM Grand will showcase the fine art photographer’s awe-inspiring landscape images and never-before-seen sculptures.

“The gallery at MGM Grand gives me a unique and ample space to showcase nature’s awesome beauty,” said Mitchum. “Guests have given such warm feedback on my gallery at Bellagio; it just fuels my excitement for this new gallery and the opportunity to share my work with a whole new audience. I look forward to filling it with my most precious masterpieces.”

Featured images will include “Third Day,” Mitchum’s famed $1.2-million showpiece, and “Power of Love” that features the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Las Vegas and symbolizes the courage of patients and their families who live with the unfortunate effects of brain disease every day. Also on display will be the “Masada Collection” from the World Heritage Site, Masada, Israel, which takes guests on an unexpected journey through Israel, sharing the remarkable history of its people while highlighting the unmistakable beauty of its landscape.

Greeting guests as they enter the gallery will be a custom-made, glass waterfall sculpture named “Icewall,” designed in partnership by Jeff Mitchum and glass sculptor Markian Olynyk. Once inside, an elite team of experienced art experts will provide tailored tours and offer personalized advice on the image that best suits each guest’s particular home or office space.

In addition to the new gallery located in the District at MGM Grand, Jeff Mitchum’s art will also be displayed in the luxurious rooms of SKYLOFTS as well as The Mansion.

The Jeff Mitchum Gallery will be open from 10 a.m. to midnight. For more information, visit jeffmitchum.com or call (800) 763-3074.
