Jan 8, 2002 9:13 AM

Although his new resort is still on the drawing board, Steve Wynn has opened his new art gallery, the Wynn Collection, in the tower of the former Desert Inn Hotel. On exhibit are more than a dozen original art pieces including works by Gauguin, Matisse, Van Gogh, Picasso, Monet, Cezanne and other masters. Picasso’s “La Reve” is the name Wynn has chosen for his new resort, which will be built on the site of the old Desert Inn and its golf course.

The art gallery, open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., features an audio tour narrated by Steve Wynn. Admission is $10 for non-Nevada residents ($6 for children 6-12). Nevada residents (with proper ID) pay $5 adults, and $3 children ages 6-12. Children under 6 are free.
