(LITTLE ROCK, AR) – The Arkansas Arts Center presents the fourth event of the à la cARTe fundraising party series in honor of the contentious artist Gottfried Helnwein on November 17, 2005. Coordinated by the Arkansas Arts Center Young Patrons, the à la cARTe series is comprised of five parties, each celebrating one of five eccentric and important artists – Andy Warhol, Dale Chihuly, Vincent Van Gogh, Gottfried Helnwein and Diego Rivera.
Join Mr. and Mrs. Brandon Adams as they host a party celebrating Gottfried Helnwein, divisive yet exceptional artist.
November 17, 2005, from 7 to 10 p.m. at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Brandon Adams in Conway
Featuring compelling cuisine and a “no-holds-barred” bar, this event will unveil a glimpse into the life of a man who shocked the artistic elite with his disturbing paintings. Helwein’s famous work entitled Marilyn is a beautiful portrayal of the legendary film star and is on display in the Arkansas Arts Center’s Stella Boyle Smith Gallery during the à la cARTe series. Two of his other works entitled Giants and Mother’s Day III will also be on display. All three pieces are part of the Arkansas Arts Center Foundation Collection.
The last event of the à la cARTe party series will be held on December 8, 2005, at Mallard’s Bar in the Peabody Hotel from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. celebrating Mexican artist Diego Rivera. Tickets to the Helnwein and Rivera events are $30 each. Proceeds from each event benefit the Arkansas Arts Center.
