AROUND TOWN: Harlequin cover art on display at Paris Las Vegas

Harlequin is known for just as much for its book covers as it is for the romance between them, and to celebrate the publishers 60th anniversary the publisher is sponsoring an exhibit of original cover art. The Heart of Woman: Harlequin Cover Art 1949-2002 will be on display in the The Paris Gallerie, just outside of the Paris Las Vegas reception area, from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m., through Jan. 31.

By presenting 60 years of cover artwork, the exhibition offers a unique insight into the profound transformations that have occurred in women’s lives.  These changes have been captured and reflected on the front of six decades’ worth of Harlequin novels and reflect cultural shifts in everything from private desires to the politics of gender. Although it is the stories of romance that charm the hearts of so many women, it is the artwork on the book covers that offers the first tantalizing hint of the pleasures that await between the covers.

The show also spotlights some of the notable names who created these stirring pieces and how the artistic process itself has changed over the decades. More than a hundred original works of art will be displayed, from Harlequin’s beginnings in 1949 to the present day.

Paris Las Vegas is located on the Strip at 655 Las Vegas Blvd. South. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
