Martin Lawrence Pops Up

Fine-art retailer Martin Lawrence Gallery, in the Forum Shops at Caesars, is hopping across the Strip for a limited engagement at the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian. The 5,000-square-foot pop-up gallery will be open through January, helping art lovers get their Christmas and, heck why not, New Year’s shopping done. Must-sees include Picasso’s “Dancers with an Owl” (pictured), Warhol’s “Muhammad Ali” and pieces by the playful contemporary painter Robert Deyber. Back at the Forum Shops, the gallery has begun offering free, guided tours of its extensive art collection. While this makes for a cute gift/date opportunity (depending on your budget), we suggest taking the tour solo in advance and then returning later to impress your sweetie with your oh-so-worldly art knowledge.
