Celebrate the Last Days of 2012 with Mischievous Olives, Dancing Strawberries and Rock Star Artist Michael Godard 

Godard is set to host his end of the year gallery event, which will include an auction to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

World renowned artist Michael Godard will host a two-day special event at his Oh My Godard Art Gallery at the Miracle Mile Shops inside the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.  The event will take place on Saturday, Dec. 29 and Sunday, Dec. 30 from 6 to 9 p.m.

Fans and art collectors will have the opportunity to meet the artist and have pieces personally autographed as part of the two-day event.  Godard will also have the original “Political Party Animals” piece on display, making light of political parties, hot off the heels of the recent presidential election.

On the last night of the event, Godard will auction off an original pop art piece, created specifically for the event, with proceeds going to a cause close to his heart, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Known as the “Rock Star of the Art World”, Godard is currently the #1 best-selling artist in the United States.  His world of art invites us into his lighthearted perspective of life, with animated olives, grapes and, dancing strawberries. His unique portrayal of fun is an exciting combination of imagination and subtle humor, which evokes the creative side in “Olive” us.

Godard’s work is highly collected by movie stars, rock stars and private collectors, from young to old, from all walks of life. Godard’s imaginative world of art is seen by millions of people each month worldwide in places such as cruise lines, galleries, hotels, television, magazines and countless merchandising kiosks and stores. His paintings even adorn the walls of the officer’s lounge in the Pentagon.

In addition, Godard recently debuted his own line of signature slot machines with Aristocrat called “Rockin’ Olives” that can be found in hundreds of casinos across the country and in numerous Las Vegas casinos.
