Opening Reception for Art Bacon Exhibition
May 19, 2013
Art Bacon is known by many as an artist, educator, and scientist. However, art has always been his passion. He was born in West Palm Beach but lived in several places in and outside of Florida. Recognized early for his artistic talent, he won many prizes and awards long before he graduated from high school. Now retired from Talladega College where he was named Professor Emeritus of Natural Sciences and Humanities, he is painting more than ever and occasionally writes and recites poetry. His newest exhibition titled The Art of Art Bacon, Artist and Activist is scheduled to open on Thursday, May 16, 2013 in the Fourth Floor Exhibition Gallery of the Central Library. An opening reception is scheduled for Sunday, May 19 from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. in the Fourth Floor Board Room. The exhibition runs through June 21, 2013 and is on view during regular hours of operation.
