On this day in history, in 1930, Marisol Escobar was born in Paris, France. Marisol Escobar was a sculptor of Venezuelan heritage who worked in New York City. Her talents in drawing frequently earned her artistic prizes at the various schools she attended before settling in Los Angeles, California in 1946. She began her formal arts education in 1946 with night classes at the Otis Art Institute and the Jepson Art Institute. There she studied under Howard Warshaw and Rico Lebrun. The pop art culture in the 1960s embraced Escobar as one of its members, enhancing her recognition and popularity. She concentrated her work on three-dimensional portraits, using inspiration found in photographs or gleaned from personal memories. Escobar received awards including the 1997 Premio Gabriela Mistral from the Organization of American States for her contribution to Inter-American culture. She was elected to membership in the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1978. #365Latino #Educate #Equip #Empower ... See MoreSee Less
