Exhibit will be on display through Aug. 28
SPECIAL TO THE DAYTONA TIMES
Artists and artist appreciators came together on May 22 to honor freedom and enjoy live music by Highway 40 at the Yvonne Scarlett Golden Cultural & Educational Center located at 1000 Vine Street, Daytona Beach.
The exhibit “Forms of Freedom,’’ curated by local professional artist Margaret Schnebly Hodge who participated in the city’s recreational programs as a child, celebrates a variety of ways individual artists express thoughts associated with living in the United States and the freedoms we enjoy.
The public can take part in the exhibit by stopping by the “Freedom Post” located within the exhibit and post messages, poetry and copies of pictures relative to their thoughts on freedom.
Admission is free and the show will be on display through Aug. 28. A closing reception will be held on that date from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Forty works of art including paintings, sculptures, fiber, collage, mixed media and photomontage were considered for award by Daytona State College Professor Kandy Lopez, who recently came to Daytona State after receiving her master’s of fine art from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton.
