Martin to display fine-art collection

Steve Martin? Fine art? Las Vegas?

As Martin might say, "Well, excuuuuuuuse me!"

The comedian, actor, author, banjo player, singer — who'll add Academy Awards host to his resume on March 25 — is going to show the public yet another facet when he displays his collection of modern and contemporary art April 7 at the Bellagio hotel-casino.

Martin's show of 28 pieces will include works by Georges Seurat, Roy Lichtenstein, Pablo Picasso, David Hockney, Edward Hopper and others. Two works by David Park and Neil Jenney that Martin previously donated to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art will also be shown.
