The Art of Richard MacDonald
Presented by Cirque du Soleil®
"The art of Richard MacDonald reveals the infinite beauty of the human body. The characters he creates are playing forever in the Theatre of life."
- Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Cirque du Soleil
"Art transcends all human boundaries. It is a gift of almost inexplicable, magical energy. When our hearts, through our senses, are touched by art, our lives are enhanced."
The Art of Richard MacDonald presented by Cirque du Soleil Fine Art Gallery is located inside the "O" Theatre lobby and features a stunning 8,000 square feet under a vault ceiling presenting over twenty bronze heroic works along with sculpture that immortalize the grace, strength, joy and discipline of dancers and acrobats.
The gallery was born out of a relationship between Guy Laliberté, Founder of Cirque du Soleil, and Richard MacDonald, a master of figurative sculpture. MacDonald feels that he and Laliberté are "similar in life long creative goals." His work focuses on the spectrum of performing life, capturing a fleeting moment in time and immortalizing the grace, strength, joy and discipline of dancers and acrobats. His work shares the creativity and imagination that fuels Cirque du Soleil and conveys MacDonald's sense of energy and passion.
Richard MacDonald has dedicated his life to creating works of art that reaffirm all that is best in humanity. MacDonald has achieved international distinction for his sculpture, paintings, and drawings, and has been the recipient of innumerable national and international awards. Celebrating realism and the expressive power of figurative sculpture, his work harnesses the sensuous physicality of humanity's heroic spirit. His work has been exhibited worldwide including Japan, Korea, Italy, the Corcoran Gallery in Washington D.C. and can be seen in galleries throughout the United States.
