Renowned artist Connie McSilver, who unveiled a 10-feet-tall sculpture called “Whoopee” outside the FIU Paul L. Cejas School of Architecture building in February 2015, will open a new exhibition at The College of Architecture + The Arts | Miami Beach Urban Studios.
A psychoanalyst with a doctorate degree, acclaimed social worker, philanthropist and gifted artist, McSilver has embodied her professional and personal experiences, combined with her intrinsic sense of humor, in her art. Her vibrant fiberglass relief sculptures, adorned with automotive paint, evoke a witty lesson on life’s daily dilemmas. No subject is taboo nor passes this artist’s brushes.
McSilver’s February sculpture unveiling at FIU celebrated the launching of a new scholarship fund that awards those FIU Interior Architecture students who best integrate artwork and collections of art into their designs. The Martin and Constance Silver Award was created to promote the integration of art in interior architecture and to focus on learning on understanding why and how to form a strong and creative relationship between art pieces and the environment that houses them.
The exhibition by Connie McSilver will open on Thursday, December 3rd, 2015 from 5:30PM-8PM at The College of Architecture + The Arts | Miami Beach Urban Studios: 420 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach, FL 33139. The exhibition will be on view during Miami Art Week from December 2-6, 2015.
