AD ART SHOW May 4 to 31, 2020 at the Oculus at Westfield World Trade Center Celebrates the Artists of Advertising

MvVO ART, creator of AD ART SHOW, today announced a partnership with Clio that will include a specialty Clio Award presentation to the winner of the AD ART SHOW 2020. Clio has joined a growing roster of AD ART SHOW supporters, including Presenting Sponsor NBCUniversal, Westfield World Trade Center, Artnet, WPP, GroupM, Publicis and Zenith Media, Lawlor Media, The One Club for Creativity, Alliance for Downtown NY, NYCxDESIGN, School of Visual Arts NYC, The Clarion List, Franklin Furnace, and The Gradient Group.

“AD ART SHOW is building a bridge between ART and Advertising by celebrating the talented artists in advertising, in a venue that brings Brands, the Art World and Advertising industry together. The driving force is the power of creativity — it’s the fuel that feeds all our dreams and endeavors! Our artists are following in the footsteps of Warhol, Magritte, Haring and many other famous names, creating art on their own time and outside of their day jobs. Images of this art will be displayed on the monumental screens in the Oculus at Westfield World Trade Center, Santiago Calatrava’s magnificent architectural icon. It’s a unique event and an opportunity for discovery.” Maria Van Vlodrop, MvVO ART Founder and CEO.

“At Clio, our mission is to celebrate creativity in all of its forms and, in doing that, we’ve made connections with so many talented leaders whose creative expressions reach far beyond their client work. We’re thrilled to be partnering with the AD ART SHOW 2020 to showcase and honor the passion projects of some of advertising’s most inspiring minds.” Nicole Purcell, President, Clio Awards

The AD ART SHOW artworks (paintings, sculpture, photography, and mixed media) will be vetted by a selection committee of contemporary art professionals, chaired by Laura Skoler (Board of Directors, New Museum & the Daniel and Florence Guerlain Drawing Foundation, Paris) and featuring a wide range of gallery, curator and critical voices in Art. The winner of the annual show will be determined by a jury of prominent art collectors and presented with a specialty Clio Award at the AD ART SHOW VIP opening night on May 4th. Other top honors include a Creative Immersion Day at NBCUniversal, curatorial sessions with top Art professionals and opportunities to get discovered by serious art collectors and an Art loving public.
