"Captain is Hollywood" Art Exhibit

"Captain is Hollywood" Art Exhibit

Presented by City of Hollywood and Nova Southeastern University at ArtsPark at Young Circle

Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) Marine Environmental Education Center (MEEC) at the Carpenter House is dedicated to understanding and protecting one of the ocean’s most beloved creatures – the sea turtle. As part of its mission,  MEEC staff interact with visitors year-round educating them about these majestic animals, and part of those efforts include the center’s “forever” resident green sea turtle, Captain.
She calls the MEEC home as she was injured in the wild and is unable to be returned to the open ocean. And it is Captain who has inspired a local artist’s latest gallery exhibit: “Captain is Hollywood” by artist Maria Isabel Lazo. Artist’s webpage is www.togetherinART.com.
The exhibit is featured at ArtsPark at Young Circle Gallery, located at 1 N. Young Cir., Hollywood and is scheduled from January 23 through March 17, 2019. Because of her love of the ocean and involvement at the MEEC, Lazo has created various artworks that are for sale, with a percentage of the proceeds going to the education center.
Along with the month’s-long showing, an artist’s reception will be held from 6-9:30 p.m. Thursday, February 21st  at ArtsPark at Young Circle Gallery. Admission  is Free and opened to the public.
The exhibit consists of a series of original acrylic and oil paintings of marine, mangrove and tropical art work. The day of the reception, artwork created from recycled lobster trap wood will be on display as well.
The MEEC was fostered from a partnership between Broward County Parks and Recreation and NSU. It educates South Florida residents and visitors alike of the need to conserve and protect our marine and coastal environments. This artistic effort grew from the eagerness to unite art with conservation issues.
