The Armory Art Center invites you to “Champions: Caribbean Artists Breaking Boundaries in South Florida”. The exhibition, celebrating the work of contemporary Caribbean artists living in South Florida, invites everyone to the opening Reception on January 13th. Artists will present complex narratives central to the ideas of identity through their use of space, location, and observation. The exhibition will host a range of work experience in painting, photography, sculpture, video, and installation art. A series of educational programs will complement the exhibition and artists. Curated by Jane Hart, this will be a memorable exhibit.  The Rickie Report shares the details here.
