ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., May 13, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Cory Allen Contemporary Art (CACA) announces they will open the doors to their new concept The Showroom, the world's first public relations gallery, this Thursday in the Warehouse Arts District in Saint Petersburg, Florida.

The Showroom, a concept developed by international promoter Cory Allen, is a collaboration between the mechanics of public relations and the traditional characteristics of a fine arts gallery. "This concept has been in the works for almost three years now," said Allen. "After scouting locations across the nation, we recognized that St. Petersburg is where the first PR gallery needed to be."

Opening night will feature a retrospective of Post-PC Artist XVALA who's famous for his "Fear Google" campaign and celebrity trash sculptures; created from the residential trash, collected by the artist, of celebrities and tech icons such as Kim Kardashian, Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, and others. The show will also showcase XVALA's street art of the highly controversial nude selfies of Scarlett Johansson and the artist's "Celebrity Chimp," which was featured on NBC's "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno.

"I support Cory's vision," said XVALA. "The PR gallery concept and having St. Petersburg as the location for this concept makes sense and I look forward to being a part of both."

The evening's show will also feature a special viewing of Celebrity Artist Daniel Edwards' "Landmark for Breastfeeding"; a life-size park bench sculpture of Angelina Jolie nude, double-breastfeeding her twins. Highly publicized by the media and the public, the sculpture sparked public breast-feeding debates worldwide and was named by TIME magazine as the "Top Breast-Feeding Controversies of All-Time."

"The Warehouse Arts District here in St. Petersburg is a great place to be for the arts," said Allen. "I look forward to being a part of it all."

The Showroom will open to the public on May 15, 2014 at 7 p.m., located in the Warehouse Arts District at 2121 2nd Ave South, St. Petersburg, FL.
