Sunset Marquis Hotel and Morrison Hotel Gallery Present a Holiday Celebration
Hosted by Bad Santa, Billy Bob Thornton
With A Photography Exhibition and Sale by Timothy White
On Thursday, December 15th the Sunset Marquis Hotel and Morrison Hotel Gallery will be presenting a holiday soiree not to be missed. Hosted by Bad Santa himself, Billy Bob Thornton and sponsored by Miramax, the party will take over the 2 ½ acres of the hotel including its award-winning restaurant, bar and café.
But the star of the night isn't the party, it's Timothy White's
photographs. One of the most renowned photographers of our generation,
his work has influenced pop culture in ways you may not even be aware
of. A recipient of the Lucie Award for International Photographer of the
Year, Mr. White, a partner of Morrison Hotel Gallery, will exhibit some
of the most powerful examples from his body of work - only a snippet of
the thousands of images he has created throughout his career.
The exhibit will be 35 to 40 images and feature commanding photographs of subjects such as Aretha
Franklin, Harrison Ford, Brad Pitt, James Brown, Johnny Depp, Luciano
Pavarotti, Michael Jackson, Audrey Hepburn, Jay Z, Robin Williams, Bruce
Springsteen, Elizabeth Taylor and many others. In addition to the exhibit, White's work is displayed throughout the hotel in larger than life 40x60 images.
Staying true to form,
Mr. White has created a counter culture of cool at the Sunset Marquis by
hosting one-of-a-kind monthly events that feature exhibits from other
Morrison Hotel Gallery photographers, rare film shown on a 30-foot
screen, live performances, and more. White has worked with some of the
most legendary talents in music, movies and TV, and has photographed
some of the most recognizable movie posters of our time. His work has
been featured on the covers and in the pages of countless high-profile
publications and album covers of some of the most extraordinary
Dawn Kamerling, owner
and CEO of The Press House says of White, "In the 20 years I have been
doing PR, it's rare to come across someone as creative and passionate as
Timothy White. I have no doubt that he and his work will leave a
significant mark on the thumbprint of art for our generation."
Hosted by Mr. White's
long-time friend, Billy Bob Thornton, the holiday celebration will
include live music in 3 areas of the hotel, cocktails, hors d'oeuvres,
and a super exclusive VIP carving station.
White has photographed the movie posters for Bad Santa and Bad Santa 2, which opened November 23rd, along with several other posters for Miramax films.
The holiday party is invite only and not open to the public.
