The dedicated Art & Design zone at this month's Licensing Expo is set to provide several resources for artists, attendees, licensors and licensees that enhance the art and design offerings.

The new Art & Design Resource Center will give attendees a convenient location on the showfloor to meet and receive matchmaking services.

J'net Smith from All Art Licensing will host the Resource Center and report on deals and events, assist attendees in navigation of the art area and provide invaluable connections for licensees, manufacturers and agents seeking to licence brands from the Art & Design zone exhibitors.

Marc Garabedian from Art Moose will interview exhibitors and stream live video footage of the exhibiting artists' work.

For new brands, the New Artists Launchpad - also housed within the Expo's Art & Design zone - will highlight a contemporary, cross over collection of curated exhibitors such as Knotty Tree Press, Museum of Pop Culture, Lily Lemon Blossom, Pop the Balloon, Robu Roku, Josephine Kimerbling and Story Posters.

Other activations include a live painting demonstration by Robert Holton from Drizzle Studios who will create an original work on-site, and performance art demonstration from Stephen Fishwick, represented by Get Down Art.

Fishwick will paint live to music several times daily throughout the three-day event.

Licensing Expo runs from June 17th to 19th at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. Click here for further information.
