Congratulations to New York based artist Jeremy Penn, who has been selected to represent the United States during Rosafest, an art exhibition celebrating the Pan-American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. A total of 42 artists were selected, one from each country participating in the games. The artists will each be painting a larger-than-life rose sculpture that was designed by Karla De Lara.
Jeremy Penn plans to devote the entire month of August to breathing life into his creation, working alongside Karla de Lara in her personal studio before the public unveiling of the completed “rosa .” All 42 roses, one from each of the participating countries, will grace the streets of the city during the duration of the Pan-America Games.
If you can’t wait to see Penn’s contribution to the Pan-America Games, his work (as pictured above) is featured in the New York exhibit “Clipped” at Le Salon D’Art located at 90 Stanton Street (at Ludlow) in New York through July 31, 2011. The exhibit also features the work of Andrew Matsumoto, Michael Serafino, Flip Skip, Ari Lankin and Borbay. Don’t miss it.
