Take Home a Nude. Yes, you read this correctly. However, we are talking about art here! The Armory Art Center, the visual arts education and exhibition center in West Palm Beach, has planned a silent suction featuring over 300 works of photography, sculpture, jewelry, glass, and choice crafts donated by noted artists and collectors. What makes this event so special? Art is known to be visually appealing, but Take Home a Nude taps into all the senses while you experience art in various forms (2D and 3D), live music and savory hors d’oeuvres. The event celebrates the collector in everyone.
“This is the most fun, interactive event of the season and will include art for the serious collector as well as the sophisticated and casual buyer,” stated David Veselsky, chairman of the Armory.
Linda Silpe and Jan Willinger, co-chairs of the event, have passionately tended to each detail making this an affair to inspire and remember. The Palm Beach Daily News featured the duo highlighting the third “Take Home a Nude” they have organized to benefit the arts center.
