My many talented employees display their art

You may remember a blog I posted last year regarding an art show of works created by MSLO employees. It was such a huge success that we decided to hold another one this year. I was especially happy to learn that our previous show had submissions from thirty-five employees and this most recent event nearly doubled that number. It's always so interesting to learn new things about my employees and to see, first hand, how talented they are. An art show, such as this one, also allows people who are not normally thought of as being creative, to display the talents they practice outside of their daily work.

This year there was also a DJ to help provide a terrific atmosphere and the event was also catered by Peter Callahan. An invitation was extended to the outside world, drawing other members of the New York art world, including gallery owners, artists, dealers, press, and bloggers. It really was a beautiful evening and I was proud of the 'downtown, hip sophisticated vibe.' Many thanks to MSLO event coordinator, Erin Furey, who conceptualized and produced this amazing event!
