Salvatore La Rosa
February 20th - March 20th, 2011
Works from the 1960s to the Present
"On the whole, La Rosa's oeuvre – collages, monstrous paint-glob sculptures, and scrap paper doodles – are rich and multilayered, suggesting they're born of a unique and vibrant mind."
K. LEE SOHN Miami New Times Thursday, Aug 18 2005
Salvatore J. La Rosa was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and raised in North Miami, Florida. A Kent State University Fine Arts graduate, La Rosa returned to Miami and joined the faculty at Miami-Dade College North Campus. In 1975, La Rosa along with Robert Thiele were the first South Florida artists invited to participate in the Whitney Biennial.
La Rosa's works are rarely shown. The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) North Miami featured Salvatore La Rosa in August 2005. La Rosa is the first artist to have works exhibited in the Bridge Red Studio 5 Project Space.
