Vegas Elvis 1977 has left the building.
His next show is a fundraiser for Swope Art Museum in Terre Haute, Indiana.
Vegas Elvis 1977 was honored in 2019 to appear at the Swope’s 75th Annual Wabash Valley Exhibition and now it’s his turn to give back.
I have donated this photography-based abstraction for a silent auction on May 3 during Swope Art Museum’s annual Marilyn Pendergast Spring Dinner and Fundraiser in the Country Club of Terre Haute in Allendale.
Each year, the dinner honors someone involved with the Swope for their contributions. Each year, proceeds from the silent auction help fund the upcoming annual exhibition.
Leading up to the fundraiser all donated original works of art will be on display in windows at the Swope, 25 S. Seventh Street.
In addition to the Swope, Vegas Elvis 1977 had shows in Arts Illiana Gallery and The Gallery at Clabber Girl Museum. May 3 will be his fifth and final public appearance in Terre Haute . He will then be added to a Swope patron’s private collection.
What an honor!
