Citi returns as official Retail Bank Partner of LA Art Show


Citi is proud to be the exclusive retail bank partner of the LA Art Show, taking place at the Los Angeles Convention Center from February 5-9, 2020. The LA Art Show is the most comprehensive international art show in the US and hosts over 70,000 visitors over a four (4) day period. For its 25th year anniversary, the overarching theme of the LA Art Show will be Diversity and Inclusion and will focus on art that is impactful and transcends all borders. We at Citi applaud the theme and will be creating an environment within the Citi VIP Lounge at the LA Art Show that will showcase the work of artists from many different ethnic backgrounds and from all over the world.

We look forward to welcoming the VIP attendees of the LA Art Show for its 25th anniversary celebration. Be sure to stop by the Citi VIP Lounge to rest and recharge during your art viewing experience.

We are delighted to have Citi, the show’s Official Retail Bank Partner and Sponsor of the 2020 VIP Lounge, stage a series of presentations by select LA Art Show exhibiting galleries throughout the show weekend. These short and informative LA Art Show Gallerist /Artist Talks occurring within the lounge, will allow show VIPs the opportunity to learn about selected important artworks provided by these key show galleries for display within the Lounge. The lounge art curation and design have been provided by Consuelo Eckhardt of Ce Consulting in partnership with MaryLinda Moss of Source Art.

Here are some highlights of the artworks within the exhibit in the Citi VIP Lounge:
