Public Art Wednesday: Limulidae by Gustavo Oviedo at Young Art Museum

Meet Gustavo Oviedo, an artist who draws inspiration from all over sunny South Florida, both by land and sea. He currently has a mural titled Limulidae at Young Art Museum. Limulidae is an abstract mural that incorporates his ideas about marine environments and resusing materials.

Oviedo has a keen interest in marine environments, and has become an “accidental environmentalist” of sorts, collecting collecting discarded objects from the bay and transforming them into art. Over the past three years, he has explored many of the marine environments of South Florida, and these experiences inspired him to research specific topics, including the horseshoe crab (Limulidae in Latin), which Oviedo chose as the title for his mural because it symbolizes the inspiration behind for the exhibition.

Want to meet the artist? Members of the Young Art Museum have the chance to meet Gustavo during ColorFALL Fest, Saturday November 8th from 1:00-3:00pm.
