The work of Peter Lik took center stage - literally - at the lavish “One Night for One Drop” charity benefit in Las Vegas Friday night attended by celebrities like Britney Spears, Shania Twain, and Pamela Anderson.
The ethereal waterfalls of Cascade and Wailele framed one of the sequences performed by Cirque du Soleil at founder Guy Laliberte’s extravaganza at the Bellagio to increase access to clean water for drinking and sanitation around the world. During the show, when Peter’s art was projected onto the huge stage screens, several audience members could be heard saying, “That’s Peter Lik!”
“The scene was electric,” Lik said. He added that taking the shot that became “Allure” was a wet experience, a perfect fit for the One Drop gala: “I was drenched from head to toe by the falling water.”
In addition, Lik donated a signed Artist Proof of his striking Allure for One Drop’s online auction, which also featured other luxury items such as a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster valued at $500,000 and a Chopard Watch from the private collection of Prince Albert II of Monaco.
“It is a real honor for us to be able to support One Drop,” said Michael Hill, Executive Vice President of Lik USA. “We hope that the beauty of Peter’s waterfalls reminds everyone how precious this resource is all over the world.”
