NOVEMBER AT MUZEO
The Mother Earth: Art by Robert Refugio opens Saturday, November 4. This mixed media collection takes a dreamy yet critical look at our planet’s ability to rebuild itself. Local artist and commercial graphic designer, Robert Refugio explains his unconventional approach, “all my work is mixed media-oil, acrylic, pen, charcoal-I’m not the traditional canvas painter. I like to use what ever I can find and paint on.” Meet Robert Refugio at the opening reception on Sunday, November 5 from 1 – 3pm. The exhibit is free and is open through January 7, 2018.
All aboard! Muzeo Express: Holiday Model Trains returns November 18, bringing the spirit of the season to Anaheim through January 7, 2018.
