The world’s largest privately-owned art gallery, the Martin Lawrence Galleries at The Forum Shops at Caesars is showcasing its flagship 26,000 square foot gallery (Las Vegas’ home to the masters and the best of the contemporaries) to host the Art of The Party II – An Evening of Art and Fashion on Saturday, July 20 from 7 – 11 p.m. Celebrating its second anniversary in Las Vegas, Martin Lawrence is once again partnering with UMC’s Trauma and Burn Care Center and will donate 100% of the $25 ticket price to support the life-saving work of UMC’s Trauma and Burn Care Center, Nevada’s only Level 1 trauma facility. Tickets can easily be purchased online at www.theartoftheparty2.eventbrite.com.
With art ranging from Warhol to Chagall to Rembrandt, The Art of the Party II will celebrate the synergy between art and fashion; highlights of the event that is being produced by Mikey Koffman – producer of LA Fashion Week – include live and experiential fashion presentations featuring one-of-a-kind, pop-art inspired fashions created by celebrated stylist and costume designer Anthony Franco as well as artful music, a DJ, entertainment, food and drinks including The Art of Chocolate by Max Brenner -sampling and showcasing edible creations and sweet treats and The Art of Beauty presented by Sephora.
Also, a rare gathering of acclaimed artists including Philippe Bertho, Robert Deyber, Franҫois Fressinier, Kerry Hallam, Douglas Hofmann, Liudmila Kondakova, René Lalonde, Felix Mas and others will participate in the evening’s celebration.
“We are thrilled to once again be partnering with UMC on this annual event,” said Gallery Director Stacie Goulet. “Last year’s event was so well-received and such fun that we can’t wait to outdo ourselves this year. We are giving 100% of the ticket sales from the evening to UMC, so we are hoping we sell-out. This gallery is such a spectacular setting to showcase works of art for every level of collector and also makes for a great venue to throw a fantastic and creatively-inspiring event.”
“We are extremely grateful for our ongoing partnership with the Martin Lawrence Galleries,” said UMC CEO Brian Brannman. “A gallery of their caliber could choose to donate to a myriad of worthwhile organizations and the fact that they chose the UMC Trauma and Burn Care Center is incredible recognition for our caregivers who are dedicated to saving the lives of those who need us the most.”
