Millennium Partners Sports Club Management LLC announced the installation of a Per Hillo art exhibit at Reebok Sports Club/NY to enhance the Club experience and support the mission of one of its community partners, Life is good Playmakers.
A renowned Danish artist, Hillo is known globally for his bright and glamorous paintings that mix modern and romance in an awe-inspiring way. At the May 14th event, he will create a painting live for Club members and will donate 50 percent of all profits from his exhibit sales to Life is good Playmakers, whose mission is to help kids overcome poverty, violence and illness.
“Featuring Per’s incredible works of art adds to the inspiring and invigorating environment we’ve created for our Members,” says Tonya Jacobs, Reebok Sports Club/NY Regional Director of Operations. “And we’re thrilled to support Playmakers, an organization near and dear to our hearts that we’ve supported since July 2012.”
The idea for the exhibit originated with international fashion model, singer, producer and longtime Club member, Malena Belafonte, who introduced Reebok Sports Club/NY to the artist. Called “Heart and Soul,” the exhibit “captures the happiness and inspiration infused in every one of Per’s paintings,” Belafonte said. “Exhibiting his heartfelt art aligns with what Reebok Sports Club/NY has come to mean for me and thousands of Members — a soul-filled, true-to-yourself, inspirational way of living.”
For Hillo, partnering with Reebok Sports Club/NY to support Life is good Playmakers perfectly matches his mission as an artist. “I am honored to be exhibiting in this grand environment with such a loyal following — and I feel even better about supporting a charity. Being able to support other people's dreams is my passion.”
