The Baker Art Museum Selects Artwork of Antonio Guerrero for Florida Contemporary Exhibition
MIAMI, Florida February 12, 2014 – The Cuban Art Project/ We are delighted to inform that Antonio Guerrero‘s work has been selected for inclusion in the upcoming exhibition, Florida Contemporary, at The Baker Museum. This show presents a great opportunity to showcase emerging as well as established artists who share a geographic location, but whose work diversified personal as well as contemporary social issues.
From realism to abstraction and everything in between, Florida Contemporary features local photographers, painters, sculptors and graphic artists who have spent a lifetime at their craft, alongside an exciting array of new artists that visitors can discover for themselves. This exhibition provides an intriguing look at the innovative images, subject matter, techniques and mediums that exemplify art being created throughout Florida today.
With a mission to inspire creativity and awaken curiosity, The Baker Museum strives to be a visual arts resource for people of all ages and backgrounds with a special emphasis on the contributions of modern and contemporary artists.
The Baker Museum, the visual arts commitment of the Artis—Naples campus, includes a three-story, 30,000 square foot museum with 15 galleries, glass dome conservatory and resource room. Special features include the Museum’s entrance gates, designed by renowned metal artist Albert Paley, and a Persian Ceiling created by popular glass artist Dale Chihuly.
Antonio Guerrero’s is a Cuban artist who filters historical references and current events through his perspective to come up with images that provoke thought. There is no subject too holy for him to question. Whether it is religion, politics or sex, he presses his point with irony, boldness or stealth. His use of black and white with a limited color palate of vivid primary colors make an impression that lingers.
