Internationally renown pop artist Romero Britto’s works have come to Coral Springs which brought out museum members and VIPs to an opening reception on Thursday to find out more about the artist.
Executive Director of the Museum Julia Black Andrews says her goal is to remove the intimidation factor and become more engaging which allows everyone to enjoy the works of the artists.
“His [Britto’s] work are so delightfully refreshing and it was a happy and lighthearted event and I think everyone had a wonderful time,” she said.
Andrea Bejarano, manager of Magical Thinking Art with Britto Central was the guest curator and provided the “walk and talk” giving guests a look into Britto’s life and his works.
Before the reception was over, museum board member Laurette Homen made a special announcement that the artist himself would be the special guest at a future event that she will chair called “Blame It on Rio!” on August 20. This masterpiece event will begin with a VIP Cocktail Hour at 7 p.m for $150 which includes a meet and greet with Romero Britto or general admission for $75 at 8:00 p.m.
The museum exhibit showcases Britto’s work until August 29, 2015, and presents a collection of his iconic paintings, limited edition prints, and sculptures in this eponymous exhibit. A majority of the pieces of Britto’s works are for sale and a percentage benefit the museum education programs. Please inquire with the museum.
