The Las Vegas Hilton presents a special evening of art … on canvas, on guitar and on screen … entitled “An Evening with Marilyn” on Saturday, November 14. This event is open to the public and free of charge.
The evening begins from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Tempo Lounge and the Hilton Theater, where guests will be able to view a display of the “Marilyn Series” art exhibit by renowned painter and sculptor, Ludvic. Entertainment in Tempo during the viewing will be provided by world-class virtuoso jazz guitarist, Robert Conti.
At 8 p.m. guests are invited to watch a free viewing of the classic film, “Some Like It Hot,” directed by Billy Wilder and starring Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon. The viewing will be in the Hilton Theater on a large screen with state-of-the-art theater sound.
The artist of the “Marilyn Series,” Ludvic, is known for the diversity of works he creates. From large-scale portraits, abstract paintings, still life food paintings, and sculptures created from reclaimed and recycled materials, his works have been featured in numerous museums and galleries nationally and internationally.
Ludvic’s large-scale paintings of Marilyn have been in the making for several years. His variations on the theme of Marilyn are endless through the use of color, texture and size. “Many people have asked why I have such a longstanding, ongoing encounter with Marilyn. To me, she is the epitome of glamour and beauty combined with the charisma of a goddess. As an artist who tires to capture beauty in all things, painting Marilyn as a subject matter is inescapable. She is a true beauty. I only hope my paintings show the intricacies of her personality and the beauty of her soul.”
The ‘Evening with Marilyn’ continues after the exhibit of Ludvic’s works with the free viewing of “Some Like It Hot” in the Hilton Theater at 8 p.m. No tickets are required as guests are invited to get their seats on a first come, first served basis.
