VIRTUAL LECTURE: Members-Only Coffee with a Curator | The Fantastic World of Mark Messersmith and Artful Books 2021

12/9/2021 at 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Event Description

Grab your coffee and join Chief Curator/Gary R. Libby Curator of Art, Ruth Grim, virtually on ZOOM for a presentation of the works featured in the exhibit Flora, Fauna and High Color: The Fantastic Florida Landscape of Mark Messersmith and the exhibit Artful Books 2021. Mark Messersmith is one of Florida's most accomplished painters and his style can only be described as 'fantastic,' not only for its quality but also due to his unique style based on high-keyed, almost fluorescent color combined with densely-packed, dynamic images of the Florida backwoods like you have never seen them before as he addresses the plight of Florida's natural interiors threatened by human encroachment. Artful Books 2021, curated by Barbara Young, focuses on the interactive sculptures created by some of Miami's most prominent contemporary artists as they pay homage to the literary arts through their own artistic expression.
