Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at email@example.com and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

Description of Subject Matter: Various artwork:
* Whirlpools by internationally acclaimed sculptor Alice Aycock. This commissioned work welcomes guests with Aycock’s compelling interpretation of water movement inspired by the nearby Potomac River. This large-scale installation, with hundreds of swirling or folded and curved aluminum plates, brings to life the feeling of waves whirling around you. Viewers can feel the power of this sculpture from a distance or watch it come to life as they examine the intricate patterns and attention to detail up close.
* Two expansive water walls extending from the porte cochere. These curved walls, designed by Fluidity, are made of textured stone that create ever-changing geometric patterns as water flows, enveloping visitors in its serene presence punctuated by sweeping surges of choreographed water. In the evening, LED lights illuminate the walls.
* Fighting Cash by Liao Yibai. Currently based in New York, Yiabi explores U.S.-China relations in his very political yet humorous stainless steel sculptures. This piece makes a powerful statement on trade relations and economics binding China and U.S. and is best viewed from a 360-degree angle. Specializing in oversized everyday objects with a twist, Fighting Cash is an absurdist piece depicting Benjamin Franklin coming alive and bursting from a $100 bill, ready to box his counterpart on the 100 Yuan bill.
* Unity by internationally renowned sculptor John Safer from Washington D.C. Unity’s 60-foot tall structures seemingly defy gravity as they rotate 270 degrees from their base. Named for the nearly identical appearance of the three towers while acknowledging their differences, this piece represents an important principle for MGM Resorts: culturally diverse people coming together to work as a group.
* Bob Dylan’s first permanent public sculpture, Portal. This iron gate, made entirely of found objects collected by Dylan himself, was welded together at his California studio and is the first of his projects to be on permanent display. Dylan was recently awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for his poetic expressions within the tradition of American song.
* A dramatic piece created by local Prince George’s County artist Margaret Boozer. This abstract map of the region, created with 10,000 pounds of clay excavated from the resort’s construction site, continues to evolve as the soil hardens, revealing new cracks and texture changes.
* A series of ceramic totems and vessels from another Prince George County artist, Ani Kasten, greets guests in the VIP check-in lobby. These nine separate works are comprised of two collections, White Birch Totems and Long-stem Bottle Forms. Each ceramic piece is wheel-thrown and hand-built by Kasten, then carved and stamped to create unique textures and patterns for each piece.
* An exquisite chandelier made of hand-blown Czechoslovakian glass featuring 892 droplets hangs down to the first floor and is best seen from the Lobby.
* Guests looking directly above the Conservatory will discover a photo of a Washington D.C. cherry tree in bloom taken in 2015. Cherry Blossom photography, taken by Prince George’s County native and photographer Ron Beverly, is prominently displayed throughout the resort including walls, elevator cabs, and decorative pillows in select suites, among other locations.
