Hope Collection

Following the successful launch of the limited edition Harry Winston Hope Collection™ Bracelet, the House of Harry Winston is pleased to continue the gift of giving in a new, charming way.

Launching spring 2013, the Harry Winston Hope Collection™ Charm features a sleek white gold and engraved mother-of-pearl design set with a delicate Winston diamond at the center, and can be worn as either a pendant, or as part of a charm bracelet.
 
The Harry Winston Hope Collection represents Harry Winston’s longstanding commitment to supporting local communities, a tradition that began with the company’s founder Mr. Harry Winston. From 1949 – 1953, Harry Winston organized an exhibition known as “The Court of Jewels,” which toured to key cities across America raising money for local charitable causes. At the heart of the exhibition was the Hope Diamond, a 45.52 carat deep blue diamond, considered to be one of the rarest and most famous diamonds in the world. In 1958, Mr. Winston donated the Hope Diamond to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. as a gift to the world.
 
Inspired by Mr. Winston’s generosity, in November 2010, Harry Winston, Inc. launched a new philanthropic platform, The Harry Winston Brilliant Futures™ Charitable Program. Within this program, the company remains dedicated to supporting leading organizations around the globe that strive to remove barriers for disadvantaged youth to obtain a quality education and the skills necessary to be successful in life; provide access to cultural and artistic enrichment; and enable healthy futures.
 
The Harry Winston Hope Collection is available at The Shops at Crystals.

Illuminating Light Installation

Opening this June, a new installation by internationally acclaimed artist James Turrell will debut at The Shops at Crystals.  The ‘James Turrell Installation at Crystals’ is the latest addition to the CityCenter Fine Art Collection, the first major permanent collection in Las Vegas integrated into a public space.  

Central to the project is the transformation of the monorail station where light will immerse the space with color, in coordination with the arrival and departure of each train.  In response to the unique architecture of the Daniel Libeskind-designed building, Turrell created a new visual experience for guests of the luxury fashion center. The installation will feature works that can be experienced from multiple vantage points – seen from afar as subtly changing planes of color or from within an area flooded with light.

“This installation continues the commitment of CityCenter to bring the most important artists and artworks to Las Vegas,” notes Jim Murren, chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts International.  “James Turrell will create a visual experience never before seen, embodying the wonder of Las Vegas.”

The commission for Crystals incorporates many of the series from the extensive oeuvre Turrell has developed over the last four decades including Space Division, Wide Glass, and Shallow Space Construction.   An artist whose works play with perception and the effect of light within a created space, Turrell believes human perception to be his true medium; in his words, “My art is about your seeing.”

Crystals will unveil the installation and monorail station on the occasion of  four concurrent exhibitions of Turrell’s work at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and Kayne Griffin Corcoran in Los Angeles.

In addition to exhibiting at the world’s foremost museums and galleries, James Turrell is the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship as well as a Guggenheim Fellowship, The University of Virgin­ia’s Jefferson Medal for Architecture, a National En­dowment for the Arts, Frankfurt’s Friedrich Prize and France awarded him its highest honor for the arts, making him a Commandeur de L’Order des Arts et des Letters.   

Since 2009, CityCenter has dedicated considerable resources to cultivate an unparalleled corporate art collection. The CityCenter Fine Art Collection features works by acclaimed artists, sculptors, and visionaries including Antony Gormley, Jenny Holzer, Maya Lin, Richard Long, Henry Moore, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, Nancy Rubins, and Frank Stella among others.
