Business Gets Beautiful
Boca Raton Museum Art School to Exhibit Artwork in International Plaza
Boca Raton, FL – Doing business in West Boca just got a little more beautiful thanks to a public/private partnership between Liberty Equities, which owns and operates International Plaza, and the Boca Raton Museum Art School. The public spaces of International Plaza, including the North and South buildings’ atria and hallways, will soon showcase more than 50 paintings and photographs made by the school’s advanced students, on view from March 6th through July 26th. Building tenants and members of the public can meet the artists during an opening reception on Wednesday, April 11th from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.
“This project gives the students an opportunity to display their artworks to an audience that may not be familiar with the talents of the art school students,” says Walter O’Neill, Director of the Art School.
“What separates the animal kingdom from mankind is the ability to create art… We are very grateful to the Boca Raton Art Museum Art School and the generosity of the artists for sharing their creativity with us and the patrons of the building. Partnering with the Museum and School seemed like a fantastic way to get more involved with the community, brighten our surroundings, and encourage local artists to proudly display their talent.” says George Brock, President of Liberty Equities.
International Plaza is a Class A office building located at 7280 and 7284 West Palmetto Park Road and tenants include medical offices as well as legal, financial, and real estate services. While many office buildings and business centers display artwork, few go above and beyond to find and show the work of local artists. International Plaza stands out for partnering with a non-profit to highlight culture and community in its environs.
“Visitors will see the artwork in a corporate environment,” adds O’Neill. “We are delighted to add a pop of beauty and local culture to their business day.”
