Today is last day: “OneJupiter” exhibit at the Cultural Council* in Downtown Lake Worth

Below are two excerpts from DiPaolo’s wonderful article and the exhibit details follow:

JUPITER — Paintings, weavings and the history of Guatemala are all rolled into the OneJupiter exhibit at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County.
     “We are representing the people of Palm Beach County on our walls,” said Trish Halverson, manager of arts and cultural education at the center on Lake Avenue [in Downtown Lake Worth].
     The exhibit is a joint effort between the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum, El Sol Neighborhood Resource Center and the Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery and School of Art in Tequesta.

     “Art can be an incredible icebreaker between cultures. People step out of their normal space and see what they have in common,” said Stuve [Jamie Stuve, the president and chief executive officer of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum].
     Paintings by Guatemalan artists such as Lorenzo Marroquin are also on display. Marroquin took art classes at El Sol. Many painters do their art work in between jobs at El Sol, said Andres David Lopez, El Sol communications director.
