Virtual Artist Studio Visits
Live at #VCMVirtual
Thursday, April 30, 7:00pm – 7:45pm
Featuring Marco Caridad
Join Life Is Art weekly during the #VCMVirtual sessions to meet local artists. Take a step “out” of your lockdown to enjoy a tour of the artist’s studio, listen to their stories, and interact with them to ask about their lives and process. Go full-screen and it is almost like you are there!
It is a break from the talking heads of most Zoom meetings. A way to get “out” and see something new and different. The opportunity to talk creativity and inspiration. To refresh your spirit and feed your soul. To pep up your mind maybe help you look at things from a new perspective. Art IS innovation and Life Is Art.
The multi-layered, colorful, and textured mixed media in Caridad Valera’s work have in common the artist’s fascination with the Latin American culture, environmental problems, and social values.

He holds a BFA (Graphic Design) from The University of Zulia, and a Master of Arts from Miami International University of Art and Design.
