Out of This Planet: Art Exhibit by Agata Ren

Friday, November 8, 2019

The Boca Raton Public Library presents a new art exhibit, “Out of This Planet,” by Agata Ren. Visitors to the Art in Public Places area of the Downtown Library will be able to view a variety of bold art pieces featuring endangered animals and flowers. Ren says, “Just like a portrait of a person captures a moment and keeps the image alive, I like to immortalize endangered animals in my artwork.” This free exhibit is open during regular library hours.

Award-winning artist Agata Ren is currently working on a project depicting endangered species as an artist-in-residence at her Arts Warehouse Studio. Ren was commissioned by the City of Pompano to paint a sculpture, has murals in Broward and Palm Beach Counties, and was awarded the Artist in Residence 2016/17 for the ArtCitywide Project by the Delray Beach Public Art Advisory Board, which resulted in 15 seven-foot-tall aluminum sculptures placed permanently in key locations around Delray Beach. The image of her Owls was purchased by Carlson Hotels, Inc., to use for hotel walls worldwide for a period of 10 years. Agata Ren is Jury Chairperson for the Women in the Visual Arts, Inc., an exhibiting member of the Boca Raton Museum Art Guild and the Cultural Council of Palm Beach.
