Neiman Marcus Scottsdale Will Host ‘First’ Arizona Event to Unveil Rock Legend Alice Cooper’s Warhol Outside of Larsen Gallery
For one day only, the public will get a chance to see Rock Star Alice Cooper’s multi-million-dollar Andy Warhol outside of Larsen Gallery. The legendary acrylic and silkscreen ink on canvas, Little Electric Chair will be on display Thursday, September 23rd at Neiman Marcus located in Scottsdale Fashion Square from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The Warhol is currently available to be seen at Larsen Gallery by appointment only to qualified bidders. The artwork will be auctioned off to the highest bidder during the 2021 Fall Larsen Art Auction on October 23, 2021. The Warhol is expected to fetch between $2.5 and $4.5 million and could become Arizona’s highest selling artwork to date if it sells over estimates.
“For one day only, we are so excited to share this incredible artwork with our friends at Neiman Marcus,” said Polly Larsen, owner of Larsen Gallery. “We see a great synergy with shoppers at Neiman Marcus and want to give their loyal customers a chance to enjoy the painting in-person on September 23rd.”
Andy Warhol was an original fashion influencer, dating back to 1962 when the famous artist became one of the first to turn his works into fashion items by printing the designs onto dresses. In honor of the artist’s rich history in fashion, designers will be on-site at Neiman Marcus during the display hours to help shoppers find Andy Warhol inspired trends.
“We are honored and equally thrilled to be partnering with Larsen Gallery to showcase this beautiful work of art here at Neiman Marcus,” said Tim Braun, Vice President and General Manager of Neiman Marcus Scottsdale. “Alice Cooper’s Warhol has really been the talk of the town and we are excited for our customers to see it in person here at Neiman Marcus and also to have the opportunity to bid on it this coming October.”
Neiman Marcus will also be hosting a special invite only VIP Cocktail Reception for special guests that evening. Those attending the evening reception will also be treated to a performance by Indie/Folk Singer-Songwriter Sophie Dorsten from Alice Cooper’s Solid Rock Foundation. Cooper’s non-profit Solid Rock Foundation offers support and community to the youth in local Arizona communities.
The unveiling event at Neiman Marcus will be the last opportunity for the public to view the iconic Warhol painting without a special appointment at Larsen Gallery.
