Harvey Weinstein Hosts Emma Roberts, Erika Christensen at Beverly Hills Charity Art Exhibition

Art inspired by Hollywood was the theme of the Gallery for the People Summer 2012 Preview benefiting Art of Elysium.  Oscar-winning producer Harvey Weinstein hosted the Gallery for the People Summer preview at Mr. C Beverly Hills, Ignazio Cipriani’s new signature hotel, on Thursday night.

The art event benefitted the Art of Elysium’s Fine Art Program. The summer collection — also viewable online at Gallery for the People – was displayed around the pool area at the Mr. C Yacht Club and featured over 20 paintings and drawings. The collection was filled with creative and inspired works that reflect the interlocked worlds of both cinema and art, and created by up-and-coming LA based artists.

Weinstein posed for photos in front of one of the night’s stand-out artists — Antonio “Nino” Del Prete, an Italian artist, actor and producer based in LA, who showed his Art Doesn’t Pay modern day satirical re-imaginings of famous classical paintings. In 2011, he had a show at the Chateau Marmont, which was attended by Johnny Depp, a big fan of his work.
