Mediating art and experience: Art Museums in Las Vegas.

The experiences of art museums in Las Vegas provide an opportunity to examine long-standing conceptions of the kind of experiences that are provided to visitors to art museums and in particular whether they should be sites for learning or sites for leisure. How did these Las Vegas art museums seek to mediate the experiences of those who visited  and combine these with an aesthetic approach to art appreciation, concepts of experience tourism and an emphasis on consumption and luxury?
