This week, The Cornell Fine Arts Museum at Rollins College is featuring their new exhibition De La Torre: Rococolab.
“Rococolab features a selection of works that bring together art historical imagery, religious symbolism, and pop culture in unexpected dialogue. This grouping of intricate images and objects articulates social commentary through humor and unlikely juxtapositions. Their collaborative and hybrid approach to art making is revealed in works like Quinceañera Milenial.” The Cornell Fine Arts Museum at Rollins College
