Annual Interest will feature a fundraising raffle with more than 50 contemporary artists, a multimedia interactive art exhibition where guests can participate in a recording session or activities involving ceramics, printmaking and digital photography, and No.1, a group art show co-curated by Zack Spechler and Rory Carracino. The exhibition will feature works by South Florida artists Leah Brown, Nicole Burko, Martin Casuso, Jessica Laino, Tina La Porta, Francesco Locastro, Pepe Mar, Jillian Mayer, Ben Morey, Jonathan Rockford and Peter Symons.
"This will be an exciting, energy-filled event that will launch Young At Art's 2013 series of group and solo spotlight exhibitions, artist lectures and workshops," notes CEO and founder of Young at Art Museum Mindy Shrago. "By supporting South Florida's contemporary artists and providing them with a venue to display their works, we also greatly enhance the museum's innovative gallery experiences for our visitors."
