Artist Weldon Ryan greeted about 100 visitors at a reception in his honor July 26 at the Yvonne Scarlett-Golden Center Cultural and Educational Center in Daytona Beach.
Ryan’s artwork replaced Anthony Armstrong, who was the first artist to have his work on display at the center, which opened to the public last month. Ryan was born in Trinidad and Tobago and arrived to the U.S. at age 6 in the Bronx, New York, where he spent most of his childhood.
He graduated from the High School of Art and Design in 1977, the state University of New York (New Paltz) and later the Fashion Institute of Technology.
