Brevard Cultural Alliance is proud to announce the launch of a new Exterior Sculpture Program initiative. Lynne Brezina, Art Installation Program Manager for BCA enlisted the assistance of Harak Rubio, an internationally known sculptor, to develop guidelines for exterior sculpture installations.
The initiative began when The Knowledge Exchange located at 5151 Babcock St., Palm Bay contacted BCA and expressed an interest in having a sculpture installed on the property. The Knowledge Exchange is an education resource center providing multiple fully equipped meeting rooms, each capable of supporting 18-65 people.
“The Ocean’s Guardian” was created by sculptor Harak Rubio specifically to launch the new program, and will be installed at The Knowledge Exchange in mid September and will remain on display for 6 months. In March 2013 a different sculpture will be installed. Each selected sculptor is paid an honorarium to offset the costs of the installation. The Sculpture will be offered for sale. There are only a handful of loaned sculpture programs in Florida.
Rubio, and his family, reside in Melbourne. He works in two careers simultaneously and travels between Puerto Rico and Florida. He is a sculptor and painter, but also has a career in production of movies, commercials and videos. He has worked with, Miramax Films, Animal Planet, MTV, Lifetime Movies and others.
The vision of Brevard Cultural Alliance is to have sculptures installed at many businesses throughout Brevard County, vividly illustrating their support of the arts in our community.
