LAS VEGAS - World-renowned artist Peter Max will unveil a one-of-a-kind Baldwin Baby 5'2" Grand piano, painted by the artist himself, on Friday, November 24 at 6 p.m., as he kicks off his Thanksgiving weekend exhibition at The Art of Peter Max Gallery in the Forum Shops.
Max will appear in person Friday and also on Saturday, November 25 from 1 to 4 p.m. to meet with fans and speak about the piano as well as other new artworks debuting at the gallery.

Max is currently painting the Baldwin piano in his studio in New York, which will be completed and arrive just in time for the Thanksgiving weekend event.
The sale of this top-of-the-line Max adorned Baldwin piano will not only provide a unique opportunity for a fortunate collector, but will benefit the Gibson Foundation and Peter Max's Global Works Foundation charities as well.
For more than 100 years, Gibson Guitar and Baldwin Piano have made an unmatched commitment to musical excellence.
This commitment has not only been to produce the world's finest musical instruments, but also to support and promote music education.
The Gibson Foundation focuses on making the world a better place for children and supports numerous initiatives around the globe.
Founded by Max, Global Works provides funding to hundreds of charities annually from children's art funds to animal rights groups, educational organizations and health-related foundations.
Peter Max is no stranger to painting large works of art.
Earlier this year, he painted a Baldwin piano for Ringo Starr that they unveiled together on "Good Morning America".
Additionally, in 2000 Max painted the largest Boeing 777 continental jumbo jet that flies around the world.
Beginning Monday, November 20, collectors can preview and purchase the installation of paintings that will debut during the in-gallery exhibition.
For each painting purchased, Max inscribes a priceless personal dedication and drawing on the back of the artwork while in the Forum Shops gallery.
