During today’s observance of International Museum Day, Las Vegas Sands is celebrating in two places of the world that could not be more different, yet united in a common cause – a dedication to learning, creativity, and innovation.
One of the hallmarks of Marina Bay Sands in Singapore is the ArtScience Museum which welcomes visitors from around the world to take in blockbuster exhibitions daily. But today, attendees will experience two new, temporary exhibits, free of charge - Deephorizon, a colorful creation which presents an ever-changing digital reconstruction of the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and Handfalls, a unique installation in the museum’s lily pond of floating images of water-filled hands and blooming lotus flowers that create a compelling image. Guided group tours and a photography workshops will also be available and open to the public throughout the day.
Additionally, In honor of a recent $1 million contribution to DISCOVERY Children’s Museum, and in celebration of International Museum Day, LVS has partnered with the museum to offer a special discount to all Sands Team Members and one child for entry during today’s event.
In the U.S., the Museum Day observance coincides with the annual Armed Forces Day. To reinforce its ongoing commitment to members of the military, Las Vegas Sands has also sponsored free admission to all military members (with valid photo ID) and one child at DISCOVERY Children’s Museum on May 18 as well.
A strong involvement and commitment to our communities is central to the way Las Vegas Sands does business, and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate, around the world, the benefits museums offer to the public.
