Artist, Interior Designer and HGTV personality David Bromstad (www.bromstad.com) will celebrate his first open-to-the-public art exhibition, titled “Body, Money, Death,” at the Z Ocean Hotel South Beach on December 2 and 3, 2011 from 5:00pm – 8:00pm each day.
David Bromstad will transform the lobby and common areas of the hotel for the exhibition, giving the Z Ocean Hotel a fresh new look to celebrate Art Basel Miami Beach. The exhibition is comprised of paintings and furniture installations created by Bromstad this year at his South Florida studio. As Bromstad explains, “The inspiration for the paintings and furniture pieces in this exhibition are the three things that we worry about most in life – our body, money and death. The imagery here reflects on my own personal struggle with body and money issues, as well as mortality, throughout my life.”
Bromstad promises an entertaining experience for attendees, including fans who know him as the original HGTV Design Star and the host of the Miami-based Color Splash series, as well as curious art aficionados in town for the country’s biggest fine art event.
“Everything in this show has my sense of humor and my style, but I also wanted to show another layer that viewers don’t always get to see on HGTV. I want my fans, both old and new, to walk into this exhibition and smile and be entertained. And maybe giggle a bit,” Bromstad says.
A private, invite-only event will be held on December 1 to share the collection with media and VIPs. The event and exhibition are sponsored by HGTV & HGTV Magazine, 1888 Mills, Penny Lane Publishing, Planet Lighting, Tiffany’s, Murals Your Way, Thirstystone, and Z Ocean Hotel South Beach. Proceeds from art sold at the exhibition will benefit The Bakehouse Art Complex (www.bacfl.org).
