Park West Gallery CARES Sponsors Event for Florida’s Youth Arts Corps
On Tuesday, December 14, Park West Gallery, as part of its Park West Gallery CARES initiative, donated twenty works of fine art to Florida’s Youth Arts Corps (YAC), a nonprofit organization that helps children in the Tampa Bay area to reach their full potential. Park West Gallery also arranged for California-based artist Marko Mavrovich to make a special guest appearance at the event.

Mavrovich graciously performed a live a painting demonstration and gave an art lecture for the more than thirty children in attendance. The kids were also given the opportunity to add their personal touches to Mavrovich’s painting. At the end of the event, the artist surprised everyone by generously donating the completed work of art to the Youth Arts Corps.
