Staff report

Pieces of art created by Boca Raton Museum Art School students and instructors are on display throughout two lobbies of Boca’s International Plaza building.

The building located at 7280 West Palmetto Park Road has been displaying a student exhibition thanks to a partnership with Liberty Equities for two years.

The partnership between the Boca Raton Museum Art School and Liberty Equities International Plaza provides a place for the Art School’s students and instructors to display their work in the community.

For the second year, Michele Pierno of Liberty Equities was tasked with curating 65 pieces from the submitted student/instructor artwork. The pieces come from 45 artists.

“Not only are we graced with the beauty that each artist created and generously shares with us, we are reminded each time we pass a piece that someone put their heartfelt creativity onto a canvas. It is a great reminder of the passion we all have inside of us. They did not just decorate our walls, they brought happiness to our work day,” Pierno said.

George Brock of “So-Flo Venture LLC” and owner of International Plaza, felt a partnership with the Art School could create the opportunity to have rotating exhibitions of high-caliber artwork and beautify the lobbies of his buildings, while supporting the community and the Art School.

The sale of the artwork helps to support the Art School and in turn, International Plaza has created a gallery space for display and visitors to enjoy.

This year, Pierno received over three times as many entries from the Art School students and faculty than they received in the project’s first year.

Recently, International Plaza received a TOBY Award in the Suburban Office Park category. The TOBY Awards are the most prestigious awards for commercial real estate and International Plaza received the award due to their site management, and community involvement.

Artwork can be viewed during business hours of 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.  The sale of the artwork helps to support the art school.
