New York, NY ---- MvVO ART, an innovative art venture dedicated to Creating Opportunities for Artists, announced the launch of its newest art venture AD ART. “The goal of AD ART SHOW is to reveal and celebrate Contemporary Art created by Advertising professionals and those who have evolved out of an Advertising heritage. Warhol, Magritte, Rosenquist, Lautrec, and many other art luminaries worked in Advertising before becoming the acclaimed artists we revere today. Perhaps AD ART SHOW will discover the next big name in Art?” said Maria van Vlodrop, MvVO ART Founder & CEO.

AD ART SHOW will pre-launch with an Art Talk led by a panel of Art and Advertising experts entitled, ‘Is Advertising Home to the Next Big Name in Art?’ at the Southampton Arts Center, Southampton, New York on July 5, 2017 (5:30pm to 8:00pm). Guests will enjoy wine, refreshments and enticing bites with Special guest Ron Burkhardt — an award-winning Creative Director with over 200 creative awards and a prominent contemporary Artist with over 60 gallery shows. Ron is a perfect example of an Artist coming out of the world of Advertising and gaining prominence in the contemporary Art world.

MvVO ART will launch AD ART SHOW in 2018 which will be open to Artists currently working in or with roots in Advertising in New York, USA and Internationally. Artist submissions (including paintings, sculpture and photography) which will be vetted by a Jury of art experts. Full program details will be announced this Fall.
