Exclusive Women’s Collection To Be Launched At Scoop NYC During Art Basel
New York, NY (November 12th, 2012) – Scoop NYC and LA><ART have teamed up to launch the Alexandra Grant for Clover Canyon Collection exclusively at Scoop NYC’s South Beach store, located within the Shore Club Hotel during Art Basel. On Thursday, December 6th, Scoop NYC will celebrate the collaboration with an exclusive in-store party in honor of artist Alexandra Grant and Rozae Nichols, Clover Canyon’s designer. LA><ART, a nonprofit contemporary art space in Los Angeles committed to experimental exhibitions and public art initiatives, will be the evening’s beneficiary of 10% of sales.
Alexandra Grant, an American artist based in Los Angeles, has collaborated with Rozae Nichols, the designer behind Clover Canyon, to design a collection of women’s styles using prints inspired by several of Alexandra Grant’s paintings. Grant is known for creating paintings, drawings and sculpture based on explorations of text. Her art has been displayed at museums and galleries around the globe including her first solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, the 2010 California Biennial of Art at the Orange County Museum of Art, the Contemporary Museum in Baltimore and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
Clover Canyon is designed and produced in Los Angeles, and each of Ms. Nichols’ collections reflects the eclectic, joyful spirit of California through vivid prints and streamlined silhouettes. The Clover Canyon atelier is unique: working collaboratively, and drawing on their shared passion for travel and art, the team designs original prints, and hand-engineers them to frame and enhance the body.
Susan Davidson, President and CEO of Scoop NYC said, "I am thrilled about Scoop’s collaboration with LAXART, Alexandra Grant and Clover Canyon. Alexandra's paintings are beautiful. The prints that Clover Canyon has created from them will truly resonate with our customers."
Rozae Nichols added, "We are so excited to collaborate with Alexandra Grant. Her vivid paintings express a fluid language and feminine beauty in perfect harmony with Clover Canyon. This is such an inspiring project to celebrate with Scoop / Miami Art Basel."
The collection will be sold exclusively at Scoop NYC’s Miami Shore Club location and on www.scoopnyc.com beginning December 6, 2012.
Set to take the stage next August and play host to over 80,000 music fans, Friends of Nature Music Festival also holds the prestige of the city’s first completely eco-friendly music event.
Miami, FL – Miami is renowned around the world as a hub of culture and diversity, boasting some of North America’s largest festivals and most sought-after shows. However, a new chapter will begin on August 31st 2013 as the city debuts yet another global accolade – a 100% eco-friendly music festival.
Dubbed ‘Friends of Nature Music Festival’ the event aims to raise awareness about the planet through two days of spectacular music, peace, entertainment and a wide variety of activities and exhibitors. While setting the standard by being 100% sustainable in itself, the ground-breaking festival is set to take the city by storm.
“Friends of Nature Festival was created with the idea of starting a movement to raise awareness about our planet and to push major companies to produce and promote more green products. We believe that we can still enjoy the things we love, we just simply have to make sure we are not being selfish with our planet,” says Ines Galindo, Owner of Eyeness Productions who are planning the event.
Continuing, “To be a concrete role model, Friends of Nature Music Festival is going to be completely eco-friendly, from the sponsoring products to the tickets sold. We are determined to work as role models for other events and festivals by having fun and giving back to our planet at the same time.”
Giving back is clearly on the agenda, with Galindo and the rest of the festival’s team choosing to donate a portion of all festival profits to a nominated charity. For the 2013 festival these funds will be given to the Ocean Preservation Society (OPS).
“Ocean Preservation Society is a non-profit that creates film, photography and media to inspire people to save the oceans and animals. They produced their first documentary film in 2009, The Cove, which has won over 70 awards globally including the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature in 2009,” Galindo adds.
To further their environmental commitment, the festival’s Management team is planning to source all power from natural sources such as solar and wind power, while ensuring that all products sold remain true to their 100% eco-friendly mandate.
