0


The new art exhibition presented at Krazy Kup in Plant City features the works of students, like Josue Robiero, shown here with his artistic inspiration, Dr Roy Yanong. Dr Roy was one of the many supporters of Winthrop Arts who featured in the last exhibit. The artwork is created in collaboration with senior art instructor Bryant Martinez and students at the Winthrop Arts Mobile Art Factory.

Winthrop Arts has a new exhibit created by students who attend the Winthrop Arts Mobile Art Factory in Krazy Kup, located at 101 EJ Arden Mays Blvd. in historic downtown Plant City. The exhibit was created with lead art instructor Bryant Martinez and students from the Hispanic Services Council in Plant City.

The theme of the current exhibition is music. Martinez said, “I wanted to do a theme based on the music because Krazy Kup offers live music. I wanted to pay tribute to Krazy Kup for providing the art space in their yard so that the students’ works can be exhibited in public. I also wanted to pay tribute to several of our supporters.

Two of the supporters featured in the paintings are Dr Roy Yanong (Dr Roy) and Tad Denham. Dr Roy is a founding member of the board of directors of Winthrop Arts. Denham, retired from TECO, has supported Winthrop Arts since its inception.

Guests, artist students and their families attended an artists reception at Krazy Kup on September 23.

Josue Robiero, 9, worked on the painting of Dr Roy and his guitar. Robiero said, “My art is wonderful and make it fun. My family said they liked to see my artwork.

Annabel Saavedra is the Community Coordinator for the Hispanic Services Council in Plant City.

Saavedra said: “The students made beautiful works of art. It is very difficult to choose a favorite. It’s also hard not to smile when you see the little faces of the children beaming with pride while admiring all the paintings hanging on the brick wall by Krazy Kup. We were fortunate enough to bring in families to share the special art exhibit.

Saavedra added, “Krazy Kup’s wall art says a lot about the livelihoods of our community. Each painting is unique with both its personality and its identity. It’s all a mixture, reflecting what a community should be at its core – diverse and different origins that blend and unite to form, build and bond between people. We hope to continue our excellent partnership with Winthrop Arts and their Mobile Art Factory.

The Winthrop Arts Mobile Art Factory is a grant-funded, community-supported outreach program. Grant funding is received from the Hillsborough County Arts Council and the Suncoast Credit Union.
