Bienvenido’s Panama Opening Reception will be held at ArtsMemphis on Tuesday, May 13th at 5:30 PM.
Memphian, Bienvenido Howard Romero, traveled to his native Panama for this commissioned exhibit. The pieces, created by the Memphis College of Art graduate, reflect the pilgrimage to his roots – both the familiar and the foreign and indigenous.
Artist Statement: “This exhibition has been created from a photography and painting tour of my native country, Panama. The intended purpose was to capture something in the country that was uniquely mine, something I could draw inspiration from as an artist. It had been ten years since I had seen the country, which bore me and gave me my name. ” -Bienvenido Howard (Romero)
