The entire exhibition will be for sale. The display will be part of a twice a year ongoing, and changing public showing.
“We are grateful to the Boca Raton Museum Art School and the generosity of the artists for sharing their creativity with us and the patrons of the building”, Brock said in a statement. “We need more art in this world and less tweeting. 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”.
“We are delighted to add a pop of beauty and local culture to the business day,” O’Neill said. “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 nonprofit to highlight culture and community in a corporate environment.”
