Culture at casinos

Statues near the Agua Caliente Spa Resort Casino in Palm Springs, California.

Carpet in the Chumash Casino in Santa Ynez, California.

Statues outside the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, California.

Thanks! There are some examples. However, I'm one of those who would spend more time at a Native cultural/art/museum center with a slot machine in the plaza than I am to spend time at a casino with a statue in the plaza.

Well, the statues and carpet and other decorative details give you a limited sense of continuity between the past and the present. It's not much, but it's something.
