PALM SPRINGS, CA – The week long Labor Day Celebration at Azul begins with special portrait presentations to Bella da Ball, Rudy de la Mor and Siobhan Velarde, and culminating on Sept. 1 with The WHITEOUT Extravaganza Party.
Also on Saturday evening, Sept. 1, portraits of all the entertainers will be unveiled along with performances by Jersey Shore, Sassy Ross, Marina Mac, Carol Kamenis and Charles Herrera, as well as a few surprises, hosted by Bella da Ball.
Artist James Cesena created The WHITEOUT project in 2010, as an experiment in graphic art. “Everyone is beautiful in their own unique way. This project became an opportunity for me to capture that through my artistic vision”.
Cesena approached Azul with the idea of turning the restaurant into a modern day Brown Derby, celebrating the fabulous entertainers in his own unique style.
“Back in the day, people would aspire to be ‘on the wall’ at The Brown Derby or Sardi’s” said James, artist/owner of The iMiJ Factory. “What better way to celebrate such talented entertainers while tipping our hats to, and creating, a tradition at the best restaurant and lounge in Palm Springs.”
James Cesena created The iMiJ Factory in 2001 as a branding for his art and graphic design. Using his nickname (Jimi) and reversing it (iMiJ sounds like “image”), he found the perfect name for his artistic vision. The iMiJ Factory creates unique, one of a kind renderings in a variety of mediums where the possibilities are endless! For more info, visit www.theimijfactory.com
