Councilwoman Bailey’s Artist in the Spotlight Features Talented Artists from Art in the Park

Arts and cultural activity is an essential dimension of communities and community building processes. It depends heavily on having an effective system of support and Councilwoman Jenifer Bailey wants to ensure that artists in the community are supported through the Artist in the Spotlight Program. The artists featured were all exhibitors at the Homestead Art in the Park event earlier this year and were chosen based on their distinctive styles. The artists selected were Lorenzo Acosta, Alvin Hernandez De Leon, Shannon Trezona, Dianna Escamilla, Andres Carmiol, and Jorge DeLeon. They stepped up to the dais to present their work and each had a chance to say a few words about what an incredible opportunity that was for them to be able to present their art to the community, once again. 

“One of our main goals with this program is to inspire new passions,” remarked Councilwoman Bailey. “And the fabulous artists we are presenting today do just that and we want to support them in any way we can.” 

In order to support the artists selected, Councilwoman Bailey, along with the Seminole Theatre, hosted an opening reception on Thursday, October 13th at 6:00 pm at the Seminole Theatre lobby, located at 18 N. Krome Ave, Homestead, FL 33030. The art was displayed for viewing and residents had the opportunity to purchase these one-of-a-kind pieces. The art display will be available for viewing at the Seminole Theatre during business hours.  

About the Artist in the Spotlight Program 

Councilwoman Jenifer N. Bailey is now championing the Artist in the Spotlight program originally spearheaded by former Councilman Stephen R. Shelley.  The Artist in the Spotlight program was created in 2010 and is curated to highlight the talents of local artists and allow them to showcase their artwork to the local community.  If you are interested in participating or know of a local artist in the area from Broward, Dade, or Monroe Counties, please contact Councilwoman Bailey’s office at (305) 224-4454 or  Artists who live in or near the City of Homestead will be given preference.
