MvVO ART, an innovative art venture dedicated to creating opportunities for artists, announced a Call for Artists submissions to AD ART SHOW – its newest art venture – during a reception at Y&R. This ground-breaking event will celebrate and showcase contemporary artists working in advertising, or with roots in advertising―following in the footsteps of many renowned artists, including Andy Warhol, Norman Rockwell, René Magritte, Georgia O’Keefe, Edward Hopper and so many others―often maintaining dual careers for decades. “It’s time to add more names to that list!” says Maria van Vlodrop, MvVO ART Founder & CEO.
Artists from advertising are invited to apply and submit high resolution digital files of their paintings, sculpture, photography, works on paper, mixed media work and video art, via the MvVO ART website: www.mvvoart.com , for review by the MvVO ART Selection Committee―comprised of respected art experts and a Jury of prominent art collectors, led by Laura Skoler, long time Board member of the New Museum, will vote which AD ART SHOW artists will receive a prize of distinction.
Artists selected to participate for AD ART SHOW will have a unique opportunity to take their art career to the next level in a prestigious exhibition at Sotheby’s, where their work will be showcased February 22–25, 2018.
The Call for Artists deadline is Monday, November 20, 2017.
