Artist Connie McSilver at Private Florida Grand Opera Dinner

On Wednesday, April 2nd, the Co-Producer Society of the Florida Grand Opera hosted an intimate pre-performance dinner to celebrate the opening of “Tosca” in the Next Generation Green Room of the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. Connie McSilver, whose bold and colorful sculptures and paintings were exhibited in the venue, was the Featured Artist, selected by Bernard Markowicz, owner of Markowicz Fine Art, who exclusively curates the art at the Next Generation Green Room for every new show; joining the Opera’s key supporters and sharing the motivation for her emotionally charged pieces.

Ms. McSilver is a retired psychoanalyst and respected social worker, and her experiences with human challenges motivate her work, which explores the intricacies of the psyche with a unique and often humorous perspective. She is a board member of a prestigious university and founder of the McSilver Institute for Poverty Policy and Research

As she has been touched in her professional life, her personal expression is vivid and inspiring, revealing in vibrant imagery the struggles and triumphs that we face as human beings. Connie McSilver shares her own passion and gives back both literally and figuratively; she donates proceeds from her sales to a university scholarship fund.

Before the dinner started, Anthony Kennedy Shriver, founder of Best Buddies, International and acclaimed artist, Romero Britto, stopped by to meet with McSilver, as they were interested in learning about Ms. McSilver’s art and how it has benefitted individuals and charities. The elite guest list included Susan Danis, General Director and CEO of the Florida Grand Opera, Ramon Tebar, Music Director, and Sir Alan P. Duddle.
