About Frank: A photographer, multimedia artist, curator, traveler, community activist, and philanthropist with a great passion for the arts but a bigger passion for animal welfare. A native of Puerto Rico, Frank often approaches photography as a documentarian with a twist. Most of his images are taken in real-life situations, sometimes with an altered approach. Viewers are invited to participate in moments passed, moments they will never partake in because he was the only one there to witness the scene.Photography is a critical aspect of the society in which we live. Images can educate in all aspects of everyday life. Without it, we are left only with the spoken and written word.
Frank’s mixed media creations, paintings, drawings, and art installations often represent some of his feelings and emotions and ongoing social issues.Frank finds a lot of satisfaction in the array of projects and events he creates through his 501 c (3) nonprofit organization, South Florida Lending Hands, such as his flagship art event, ART13. One of his latest achievements includes the selection of his photo art piece SAVE ME, a picture of a turtle selected by The United Nations Environment Program and the Climate Museum of New York. The image was printed on an eco-friendly, biodegradable flag and became part of The Flag Project at Rockefeller Center in New York. The flag flew high during the entire month of April 2022 at Rockefeller Center with one hundred and ninety-two other selected works of art focusing on what really matters — “Only One Earth”, the name of the exhibit.
Frank has been commissioned by the City of Fort Lauderdale, the City of Oakland Park, and the City of Pompano Beach, and his photos are currently displayed on Utility Boxes at various intersections of those cities in the form of public art.
About Chuck: Chuck Prescott, a native of Maine, USA, made New York City his home at 18. There he was allowed to be…to become—whatever the stakes, Chuck met them on his own terms. His life became colored irrevocably by his own sheer will, actions, and the unforgiving fate of happenstance.
Largely self-taught as a painter, Chuck Prescott began painting as a means of self-preservation. However, Chuck’s formal artistic education and training, aside from his myriad of life experiences, stems from the Art Students League of New York and various mentors to date.
Chuck calls his ‘style’: periods—moments, months, and sometimes years, encapsulated.
