About Our Guest Speakers:

Milena Arango, is a Colombian artist based in West Palm Beach. She thrives on adventure and the exploration of new ideas to create compelling works of art. Her journey into the world of art was ignited by her mother’s boundless curiosity and zest for life, at a time when she had the privilege of experiencing diverse cultures, languages, and people. Arango earned a degree in Visual Arts from Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, embarking on a journey into the realm of theater shortly thereafter. This diversification of artistic pursuits has enriched her creative process, where she continuously exploring new techniques and embracing risks, finding inspiration in the unexpected and seizing opportunities with the first object that comes to hand.

KX2 is a collaboration combining the strengths of artists and sisters Ruth Avra and Dana Kleinman who create mathematically inspired sculpture merging metal and painting. From a distance the work is bold and geometric, yet up close the viewer is engaged by textural hand-sanded metal and multi-layered paintings.

Dr. Andrea Lemaitre joined the City of Coral Springs as Sustainability Manager in 2023. She is responsible for implementing and managing the City’s Sustainability Action Plan, developing policy, coordinating city initiatives across departments, providing education and outreach, and partnering with the community and external organizations.

Donna Ruff is an American visual artist, curator and educator currently living and working in Miami, Florida. She works in mixed media on found printed matter, primarily newspaper headline pages and historical documents.
