Capital Art, Inc. Announces Partnership With Sofitel Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 16, 2011) - Capital Art, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CAPA) is celebrating the glamorous Hollywood lifestyle with the announcement of an exciting partnership with Sofitel Los Angeles, showcasing collections of rarely exhibited and newly discovered photographic treasures.

With the new collaboration, Sofitel Los Angeles becomes the first-ever hotel to display many never-before-seen prints of Hollywood legends from the Frank Worth Collection. Photos from the iconic Frank Worth Collection, which has been described as "the most extraordinary find of its kind in the last fifty years" by Christie's of London, are on display as a rotating exhibit in the public spaces of Sofitel in Los Angeles.

Gracing the lobby of the fashionable hotel for guests and visitors to admire, photos of Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Frank Sinatra, Ronald and Nancy Reagan, Jayne Mansfield, Sammy Davis Jr., Bob Hope, Marlon Brando, Rita Hayworth and Natalie Wood are also available for purchase. Sofitel Los Angeles will also add prints of Jane Russell, Cary Grant, Grace Kelly and other noted Hollywood legends throughout the spring and summer months. In addition to viewing the artwork in the Lobby, Sofitel is also offering meeting planners a set of three, 12 x 18 Elizabeth Taylor Photographs from the Frank Worth Collection as part of their Summer Meeting Incentive.

Worth, a relatively unknown photographer during his lifetime was also the original photographer for the Los Angeles Dodgers when they first moved from Brooklyn in 1958. During his time in Los Angeles he befriended many of Hollywood's 'royalty' and became known for his 'candid' style of photography, capturing stars in a way few had ever seen, from the sets of their movies to lavish Hollywood parties. Following his death in 2000 at the age of 77, Worth's family discovered his unpublished work that is now available through Capital Art, Inc.

Norman Solomon, President of Capital Art, Inc. commented, "We look forward to welcoming the guests of Sofitel Los Angeles for their chance to view a part of the Frank Worth Collection's unique imagery of these iconic Hollywood legends. The hotel's French style and Hollywood glamour provide the perfect setting to view these timeless images and we strongly recommend a visit. We welcome the opportunity to work with Sofitel and support further their desire to bring quality experience to all their guests."
