Pinecrest Gardens (the Original Parrot Jungle Property) and Honorary Chairperson Mayor Cindy Lerner Are Hosting A Fine Art Exhibition & Sale Titled Garden Pop, Featuring Andy Warhol & His Contemporaries from November 7th to 25th , 2009 in the Historical Parrot Jungle Hibiscus Room to benefit improvements to Pinecrest Gardens
Original Artwork by Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, Roy Lichtenstein, Donald Sultan and other world renown artists will be complimented by four local artists including Romero Britto, Erika King, Eileen Seitz and Purvis Young.
The artwork will be on display at the Gardens for three weeks, kicking off with a Cocktail Party on Saturday, November 7th, 6 to 10 PM. The exhibition will remain open to the public free of charge noon to 5:00 PM, Tuesday through Sunday, November 8 – 25, 2009.
The Cocktail Party will include Hors dâ€™ oeuvres by Whole Foods Market,
Refreshments by Bacardi USA, Live Music and Garden Tours. Improvements to the Park will be funded by sponsors, cocktail party tickets and 20% of all artwork sold, which will be tax deductible to the buyer. Logistics Chairman Steven Steele says â€œThis will be the largest Original POP ART Exhibition in Miami in several years and hopefully the beginning of a series of Art Events at Pinecrest Gardensâ€.
Controversial Art from the 70’s and 80’s will be featured along side Brittoâ€™s â€œPop Artâ€ of the 90’s, Youngâ€™s â€œStreet Artâ€, Kingâ€™s celebrity and sports collages of the new millennium and Seitzâ€™s signature tropical scenes. This exhibit differs from Miamiâ€™s â€œCutting Edgeâ€ Art in that the artists featured are among the Top Ten Artists of the Twentieth Century and notable local artists.
Pinecrest Gardens is located at 11000 Red Road, and hosts a fourteen acre botanical feast on the historical site. Tickets to the Preview Cocktail Party are available at $100 each. There is no admission to the park or exhibit after the party. For sponsorship or event information or tickets, please contact Steven Steele at 305 742-7071 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
