The premiere of the LA Art Show was February 15, and it was a night to remember, from the fashion to the food and, of course, the art! Over 120 galleries displayed art from countries including South Korea, Japan, Dubai, Switzerland, Colombia and across North America.

Actress and singer Ashley Tisdale hosted the event benefitting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The LA Art Show donates 15% of ticket proceeds to support their research and find cures to save children.

The five-day LA Art Show is a must-see, and next year, plan to attend the opening night. Guests, celebrities, and artists walk the red carpet and mingle with guests. Celebrity sightings included Terry Crews, Yissendy Trinidad and Dania Ramirez.

The premiere night offers exclusive access to the show before the public. It was an incredible night to enjoy food and beverages provided by LAArtsOnline partners while viewing beautiful works of art. As this is an intimate setting, I talked with artists and learned about their work and how they approach their craft. It is truly a special experience.

Additionally, we watched iconic Los Angeles artist Robert Vargas create live the second piece for his The sacRED Project series. The powerful mural, Protect The Life Givers, was displayed through the weekend.
