MvVO ART is a New York based art venture dedicated to creating opportunities for artists, art lovers, and brands to form powerful partnerships. MvVO ART announced a call for submissions to AD ART SHOW, its newest art venture, during a reception at Y&R. Artists are invited to submit their portfolio of contemporary paintings, photography, sculpture, art on paper, mixed media, and video art via the MvVO ART website. Artists selected 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 the exhibit will be showcased February 22–25, 2018. The deadline for artist submissions is Monday, November 20, 2017.
MvVO ART kicked-off the artist submission period for AD ART SHOW with a cocktail reception and statements from key sponsors and partners at champion agency Y&R in New York City. Founder and CEO, Maria van Vlodrop spoke about the initiative, saying “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, from Andy Warhol and Norman Rockwell to René Magritte ―often maintaining dual careers for decades. It’s time to add more names to that list!”
Other speakers included David Sable, Global CEO, Y&R; Linda Yaccarino, Chairman, Advertising Sales and Client Partnerships, NBCUniversal; Laura Skoler, board member of the New Museum and Guerlain Foundation of Drawings; and Eric Shiner, Senior Vice President, Contemporary Art at Sotheby’s and former Director of the Andy Warhol Museum.
Good luck to all!
