This December, join the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center in welcoming the Fresco Exchange for a three-day only pop-up art exhibition.
The Fresco Exchange features three Colombian artists and aims to bridge the creative gap between Latin American and U.S. culture around art. Each year, Fresco Exchange curates a traveling exhibit of original fine art from Latin American muralists.
The opening reception will take place Dec. 10 from 6 to 8 p.m., and the show will remain on display through Dec 12.
Each year, Fresco Exchange curates a traveling exhibit of original fine art from Latin American muralists. Working with artists making waves of studio practice and street art to enhance artistic opportunities, share methods of cultural expression, and inspire communities with new ways of creative thinking is their passion. These pop-up exhibits, expand the international platform for street artists to showcase their experimental studio work.
Together, this collection weaves a story of life in modern Colombia. Fresco Exchange teamed up with Gráfica Mestiza, an alternative creative platform across cities in Latin America, to curate this diverse exhibit that unveils overlapping narratives of native Colombian experiences. Artwork representing indigenous culture is reinvented in striking, modern tones, while imaginary creatures share societal metaphors through their one-of-a-kind creativity. The collection is connected by elements of vibrant nature that make Colombia so uniquely enchanting.
Fresco Exchange has hosted full-circle cultural exchanges for muralists across nations. During their US residencies, the Fresco Exchange has connected Latin American artists with street art projects in Massachusetts, New Mexico, Kansas, California, and now they are excited to welcome their next cohort to Florida. This diverse exhibition will feature artists; Felipe Ortiz, Gabriel Mesek and Ivan Salazar.
The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center located at 2301 First St. in the historic downtown Fort Myers River District. Visit www.sbdac.com or call 239-333-1933 for more information.
