The 1st Thursdays Program of The Orlando  Museum of Art and The Hyatt Regency have been exhibition partners for eighteen months. This partnership has been amazing  because it gives the hotel  guests a deeper glimpse into The Orlando Area Culture which is so much more than just a theme park area.

Bobbi Mastrangelo’s “Florida Citrus 467-1” Makes History

Thursday, May 25th, 2017
Florida Citrus 467-1 deeded to Orange County Regional History Center

“Florida Citrus 467-1” deeded to Orange County Regional History Center of Orlando Florida

On May 3, 2017, my mixed media sculpture went to its new home at Orange County Regional History Center in Orlando Florida. Now “Florida Citrus 467-1” has additional numbers.  Its Official Accession Number is #2017.016.

Many of my creations have interesting stories of the challenges I encountered.  Our Florida Artists’ Registry Members were invited to exhibit at Orlando Museum of Art’s First Thursday. I took the exhibit title “Florida Grown” literally. It had to have ORANGES.  It had to relate to the growing processing production: suggesting or incorporating seeds, dirt,  sun and water.

The “Sunlight” behind the Water Cover was a Fluorescent Bulb with a plug in cord. Location of an outlet dictated my sculpture’s placement at the Florida Grown Exhibit. So my little sculpture was dwarfed on a panel centered between two giant abstract canvases by the same artist.  To top it off, I don’t think there was another artist who addressed the theme of Florida Grown, except that the art works were “Grown in Florida.”  The placement of “Florida Citrus 467-1”  was So Disappointing.

"Florida Citrus 467-1" is out of place..wrong space.

My “Florida Citrus 467-1” received special attention at The Mills Pond House Members Exhibition in St. James NY. Alison Cruz displayed it on a sculpture stand so it was the focus of the room. I am still very fond of the Smithtown Township Arts Council where I showed some of  my earliest works.

In one  return shipment, the Fluorescent Bulb was smashed. The damaged corded light fixture was removed.  A battery operated LED Fixture replaced it, which is now operated by remote.  This offered a bright solution for placing the sculpture in future exhibitions.
