On Tuesday, February 26th at 7:30 p.m., the Aventura Arts and Cultural Center will present the third in this year’s new cultural lecture series, Affairs of the Heart: Picasso’s Women, with art historian Armando Droulers. The lecture series is being presented by the Nova Southeastern University Lifelong Learning Institute, as part of a partnership with the City of Aventura.
Pablo Picasso had numerous women in his life and Droulers says that they served as muses, models and lovers. “It seems that with almost every innovative style, there was a new woman to inspire him. The strong emotional bond that he held over those who loved him, translated into an experimental visual language, defying pictorial conventions.”
Armando Droulers lectures on arts and culture, leads art and culinary tours, and organizes art and wine culinary events. He studied at Bard College, Academia de Arte Federico Brandt, New World School of the Arts and the University of Florida. He has lived in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and speaks fluent English, French and Spanish.
The NSU lecture series will wind up on March 26 with NSU’s Missy Dore, Ed.D. presenting Sharks, Turtles, and Corals: Oh My! 50 Years of Marine Science in South Florida.”
