Opening May 19, 2017, The Mennello Museum of American Art is pleased to present OUR ORLANDO and AMERICAN YOUTH: OUR IDENTITY. Both exhibitions will be on view from May 19 - June 18.
OUR ORLANDO presents the work of five rising local artists who have shaped the visual fabric of The City Beautiful through art -- enriching nearly every surface of the physical city. Their individual methods range in form and technical experimentation from calligraphy and comic arts to murals and the digital arts. These are the voices and visual architects who create the landscape of our Orlando.
OUR ORLANDO features new and never before exhibited works from:
CHRIS TOBAR RODRIGUEZ
Supporting and fostering the creativity of Orlando's talented teen artists, AMERICAN YOUTH: OUR IDENTITY aspires to empower rising high school artists throughout Orlando, providing a space for engagement and conversations about their art.
Please join The Mennello Museum of American Art in celebration of the opening of OUR ORLANDO and AMERICAN YOUTH: OUR IDENTITY.
The City of Orlando, Friends of The Mennello Museum of American Art, The Mennello Museum Board of Trustees together with Executive Director, Shannon Fitzgerald, invite you for an evening celebrating the work of the incredibly talented artists in our community.
