Spending this summer at home could be an adventure of expanding your creativity! This summer, MGM is presenting to town a vivid array of art exhibition and making, parent-child activities, culture tourism experiences and other exciting activities to inspire guests of all ages through all five senses. Everyone is cordially invited to experience these creativity-packed activities, learn something new while having a blast with the loved ones.

 

Multi-Dimensional “Sino-Portuguese Cultural Tour”

Macau is home to some unique charms of both Chinese and Portuguese cultures. Cohering Macau’s cityscape, the architecture style of Grande Praça at MGM MACAU is also intertwined with some very Portuguese architectural features. From July 7, the “Sino-Portuguese Cultural Tour” will start leading guests into a journey of Sino-Portuguese aesthetics filled with art, architecture, music, gastronomy and craft at MGM MACAU. The experience begins with a guided tour, where guests will be toured around the hotel starting from Grande Praça, a miniature of Lisbon, to get an insight into the Sino-Portuguese history and culture through architecture wonders, and most importantly discovering a handful of romantic photo taking spots along the tour. Guests may transform themselves to craft artisans in the series of crafting workshops, where they create their masterpieces and fully experience traditional Portuguese arts and crafts, while enjoying Macanese style afternoon tea to draw a perfect ending to the experience.

‘M Art x Brewtiful Creativity – Explore Art with Coffee

Designed to stimulate conversations on aesthetic and creativity, the brand-new space at MGM COTAI, ‘M Art, is the perfect platform to encourage exchange between cultural and life enthusiasts of different backgrounds and ages.

 

‘M Art will launch its very first series, the “Brewtiful Creativity”, to promote the beauty of Chinese traditional ink painting to guests in a playful and contemporary manner.  Leading the line-up is “Brewtiful Fun’, a collaborative workshop with local artist SKIC Cheok, where participants will be creating their very own postcard using coffee as the medium and Chinese traditional landscape painting techniques, along with the insightful instructions provided by the artist. MGM is also joining hands with Fuhong Society of Macau to introduce another workshop, the “Brewtiful Upcycle. Participants of the workshop will create eco-friendly handcrafted soaps and tie-dye tote bags using recycled coffee grounds. All revenue of this workshop will be donated to Fuhong Society of Macau for supporting their artistic skills development trainings and services for people with disabilities.

 

‘M Art also showcases paintings by artist Chloe Ho, one of the artists under MGM Chairman’s Collection. Chloe’s works depict the liveliness of nature through splashes of coffee and strokes of ink. Not only the works demonstrate the artist’s comprehension of Chinese culture, they are at the same time expressing her personal energy and the contemporary interpretation of this traditional medium.
