1¢ LIFE Exhibition Opening Reception and CCPVB 25th Anniversary Celebration
First National Art Exhibition Coming to the Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach
Join the Cultural Center in celebrating its 25th anniversary with the opening reception for the Center's first-ever national exhibition, 1¢ LIFE. This 1960s themed Pop Art "Happening" will take place on Friday, October 4, 2019 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. There will be a pre-party event for Cultural Center members beginning at 5:30 p.m. It's going to be "outta sight."
Get ready to be wowed by this wildly vibrant poetry and Pop Art exhibition including works by Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. The exhibition, 1¢ LIFE, will be presented at The Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach from September 27, 2019 to November 9, 2019. This exhibition will celebrate the 55th anniversary of the landmark publication, 1¢ LIFE, with over 55 important original graphics and poems from the publication, which debuted in 1964. The exhibition will also accompany the Cultural Center's 25th Anniversary Celebration.
This retro opening reception will include 1960s themed cocktails and bites. (Fondue and martinis please, shaken, not stirred). A 1960s jazz band trio, "Cats in Bird Land", will set the vibe to music. Guests are encouraged to travel back in time and don their favorite 1960s attire. Did someone say go-go boots?
Proceeds benefit future national and international exhibitions at the Cultural Center.
Mel Ramo, 1964
