BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Media Advisory) — The Boca Raton Public Library’s new art exhibit, “Marty and Otto in Joyride,” is now on display at the Art in Public Places and Discover Room of the Downtown Library at 400 NW 2nd Avenue. Visitors of all ages will enjoy learning about world-class sculptor and illustrator Mike Rivamonte’s process of creating an illustrated book for children.
More than 30 of Rivamonte’s conceptual drawings and paintings that inspired his book, Joyride, are on display. Viewers can see actual drawings from the book, as well as demonstrations of the process of illustrating a picture book. Other items on display include Rivamonte’s original sculpture, also entitled Joyride, as well as maquettes, sculpted and casted figures, and robot sculptures.
