On November 9th, The InterContinental at Doral Miami is hosting its November Kickoff Cocktail featuring local sculptor, William Calvo, as part of its 2012 Artist Series. This monthâ€™s event will have an international flavor.
This monthâ€™s artist, William Calvo, is a Colombian-born sculptor whose work reflects a sense of strain by incorporating two contrasting aspects simultaneously: silence and the will to speak. His sculptures also reflect how human beings must struggle to comprehend, digest, and react to devastating violence like events that have clawed and ripped their way across Colombia, his homeland, over the past few decades.
This year was an important year in the trade and international arena between South Florida and Colombia, as the Free-Trade Agreement went into effect and Colombia is already South Floridaâ€™s #3 trade partner. This monthâ€™s Artist Series event will reflect how trade between countries is not just about hard goods, but human capital as well. Influential Colombians in the community will be recognized and the featured artist will present a sculpture to the Consul General of Colombia at the event as well.
