This exhibition marks the first major museum presentation of work by the late Ukrainian American artist George Voronovsky. Born in a small village in eastern Ukraine in 1903, Voronovsky immigrated to the United States after World War II and began working in the rail industry in Philadelphia. Employed as a train car cleaner and upholsterer for many years, he eventually retired to Miami Beach in the early 1970s, where he turned his room in South Beach’s Colony Hotel into an art refuge, living in the area until his death in 1982. His paradisiacal art installation included carved Styrofoam sculptures, cut tin cans, and glorious paintings on cardboard and canvas, which melded his Old World memories and his neon present. This exhibition will showcase approximately forty of his paintings alongside sculptures he created from materials discarded along the local beaches, such as old Styrofoam coolers and pizza boxes. His work has been preserved by Florida-based collector and photographer Gary Monroe, whose photos of the artist and the vibrant art environment he created will also be included in the exhibition.
