Artists Romero Britto and Ron Agam—son of famed kinetic artist Yaacov Agam—got a firsthand look at the renovated Park West Museum thanks to a special VIP tour by Park West Gallery Founder and CEO Albert Scaglione.

“It was a delight to show off the new look of our museum to these talented artists and take them through our world-class facility,” Scaglione says.

Park West Museum resides within the same building as the world headquarters of Park West Gallery, located just outside of Detroit, Michigan. Following recent renovations to the facility, the free-to-the-public museum now features an expanded collection, new gallery spaces, and several new exhibitions.

Britto and Ron Agam were joined by Michigan-based artist Tim Yanke, Adam Max, the son of Pop artist Peter Max; Park West Foundation Director Diane Pandolfi, and Carole Sorrell, founder and CEO of Carole Sorell Incorporated and former Assistant Commissioner of Public Affairs in New York City.

Park West’s gallery space currently includes an entire room dedicated to Britto’s bright and optimistic Neo-Pop art. The renowned artist took a moment to speak with Park West about some of his works and take questions from his fans and collectors via Facebook Live.

Ron Agam, who is following in his father’s footsteps, signed multiple editions of his own fine art while visiting Park West Museum and took time to engage with Park West fans over Facebook. He was pleased to see the exhibition of his father’s works in the museum.

“In the Park West Museum [my father] is featured with Goya, Dürer Rembrandt, Picasso, Chagall—that gives you the perspective of his artistic recognition worldwide,” Ron says. “I am very proud of his enormous contribution to the world of art and I believe Park West Museum is one part of this continuous and ever-growing presence and recognition.”

The Yaacov Agam art on display in Park West Museum has been exhibited internationally in institutions like the Yaacov Agam Museum of Art in Israel and the Museum of Geometric and MADI Art in Dallas.

Park West Museum is dedicated to exhibiting the artwork of some of history’s greatest artists, including Rembrandt van Rijn, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, and Albrecht Dürer. The museum also showcases artwork by contemporary masters featured in museum exhibitions around the country, including the art of Yaacov Agam.

Park West Gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The gallery and museum are located at 29469 Northwestern Highway, Southfield, Michigan 48034.
