Park West Fine Art Museum & Gallery has announced the top-10 finalists for the inaugural Made in Vegas art competition. Selected from a field of nearly 500 submissions, representing thousands of pieces of original fine art created by the most talented and innovative artists living in Las Vegas, the Made in Vegas finalists now have a one-in-ten shot at a prestigious, year-long contract with Park West Gallery, the world’s largest art dealer. In addition, the winning artist will have the incredible opportunity to display their work on the walls of Park West Gallery’s 7,000-square-foot museum and gallery at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, alongside masterpieces by Picasso, Rembrandt, Renoir, and other art world legends.
The Las Vegas community now has the opportunity to make their voices heard, as the competition will shift to in-person, public voting to narrow the field down to three. The winner will then be chosen by a panel of world-renowned artists and Park West Gallery representatives, including Michael Godard, Autumn de Forest, Executive Vice President of Park West Gallery, John Block, Park West Gallery Directors Candice Vergis and Michael Vergis, and Crystal Solis of Freddie Ramon Design.
The top-10 finalists’ work will be displayed inside Park West Gallery at the Forum Shops inside Caesars Palace, with public voting taking place from Monday, Aug. 23 through Monday, Aug. 30.
