‘Beauty of Nature and Recyclable Refuse’ art exhibit opens next week in Ocala

A brand-new exhibit featuring artwork made from recycled materials is opening next week in Ocala.

The exhibit, The Beauty of Nature and Recyclable Refuse by Albert Bevilacqua, will be on display inside the Recreation and Parks Administration building (828 NE 8th Avenue) and Eighth Avenue Adult Activity Center (830 NE 8th Avenue) beginning on Wednesday, June 14. The artwork will remain on display through January 8, 2024.

The public will be able to check out the free exhibit on Mondays through Fridays, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. The two-dimensional artworks on display were made from recycled materials that the artist collected.

The featured artist, Albert Bevilacqua, resides and works in Boca Raton. He is passionate about protecting the environment and keeping preserved natural habitats free from human litter.

Bevilacqua sponsors and volunteers at numerous beaches, parks, and nature preserve clean-up events. He then turns the collected waste into art.
