The challenge of selecting artworks was embraced by our juror Angelica Arbelaez as she curated a show from the over 300 entries to make the final selection of 67 pieces, ” Nancy K Turrell, executive director, tells The Rickie Report.

 

Miami-based curator Angelica Arbelaez will host a Juror’s Talk on Saturday, September 22 at 11:00 a.m. to discuss her most recent curatorial project Between a view and a milestone and revisit some of the research that informed the conceptual framework of the exhibition.
