Going to a Park West Art Auction on board a cruise ship, was one of the best things my husband and I have done. We booked 2 more cruises following the first one, and made more wonderful purchases. Then I took my granddaughter on a 3 day cruise, of course with Park West on board. I wanted to open a new avenue of education for her. However, she had other things in mind on the cruise. Being a super granddaughter, she somewhat reluctantly went to the auction with me. She followed me like a puppy for about 2 minutes. After my own viewing, I found her talking to the auctioneer about a few paintings. She had her own paddle, and when her desired paintings came up, she bid them and won both of them. She is 20 years old, and spent $3,400. She is now not only going to college, but has become very aware of art and the artists. Well done grandma!!! Now I want to take her younger sister, and introduce her to the ""WORLD OF ART"". We attended a VIP EVENT IN LAS VEGAS, weeks ago, and I must say when Park West puts on a VIP EVENT, they do it top of the line. We were so fortunate to have met ""4"" of the world top artists. We spent 5 inspiring days with them. We will never forget every minute of that event. We are look forward to the next VIP event. Thank you Park West, and all the customer service persons.
