February 17th, Celebrate the art of Contemporary Painter, Sona Mirzaei in Conjunction with the 8th anniversary of Equinox Century City!

Tuesday, February 17th is a big day for Equinox Century City. It marks the 8th anniversary of the flagship location. Also taking place is the opening reception for a solo exhibition featuring contemporary artist Sona Mirzaei.

General manager of the Century City location, Michael Melnick said this will be the first time that Equinox Century City will be hosting an art event but explained the company has done it is few times. The most recent exhibit was a photograph exhibit at the West LA location. Melnick has worked for Equinox Fitness for the past ten years and run the Century City for the last two. Prior to that he spent fifteen years as a recording engineer. 

When asked if he was a fan of visual art, he replied, “Not as much as golf and baseball but I do appreciate the arts in all forms.” He said he believed there is a connection between art and emotional well-being. “I think the big picture is to embrace the things that make you feel good whatever they are.” He further explained that he found helping members live better lives in every way made his job incredibly satisfying. “They look better, feel better and have a much better outlook on life.”

To celebrate the special anniversary, Equinox Century City will feature special classes, complimentary refreshments and more. Take $200 off when you join and Equinox will donate the rest of your initiation to Cycle for Survival in support of rare cancer research.

Sona Mirzaei has been busy nonstop since the start of 2015. Her art was featured in the LA Art Show in January and she also had a solo exhibition entitled Abstract Expressions P.II” at the Rebecca Molayem Gallery. The artist created and donated a special work for the Pico Youth & Family Center event a couple weeks ago, which raised money for the Santa Monica nonprofit. She is now gearing up for a private exhibition in Palm Springs.

For her solo exhibition at Equinox Century City, Mirzaei will be showing many works from her In Search of Splendor collection.

Mirzaei’s statement: Mind Blown reveals human nature in a dreamlike state while also getting a glimpse of chaos of humanity in this tranquil setting that takes one beyond and has an emotional effect as if you might have already experienced this it before. It also explores multiculturalism, science, and symbolism.

The opening reception and anniversary event takes place on February 17, 5-8:00pm. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served. Equinox is located at 10220 Constellation Blvd, Century City, CA 90067; 310.552.0420; http://www.equinox.com/
