Lucy Keshavarz, founder of the Art & Culture Group, will be the featured speaker at the Wellington Art Society meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 14 at Bootz Culture Camp (420 State Road 7, Royal Palm Beach). The meet and greet with refreshments begins at 6:30 p.m., followed by a member spotlight and the meeting. Keshavarz’s talk will be the highlight of the meeting, which will be followed by a raffle.
Keshavarz is a fifth-generation Floridian, graduating from Florida Atlantic University. She assisted her husband in opening Keshavarz & Associates, a civil engineering and survey firm. In addition to being a talented artist, she has always had a vision and passion to create a connection between art and communities. This passion led to the formation of the Art & Culture Group in 1999.
The Art & Culture Group has completed several projects in Palm Beach County and throughout the country. They specialize in bringing project-specific solutions based on the needs of the client and the community. This leads to authentic and original results.
The Art & Culture Group has worked with public, private and nonprofit organizations in facilitating Art in Public Places. They design, fabricate and install public art and eco art. The group also promotes and manages two multi-media traveling exhibitions by artist Michael Nye.
Keshavarz believes that everything she does, and all that she comes in contact with, adds to her artistic reservoir. She is compelled to capture ideas and concepts that are often overlooked. “My master is our natural world and the creative spirit that resides within,” she said.
