Friends of Art of the Lowe Art Museum concluded an event-filled 2010-2011 season with a members-only visit to the home of renowned artist, Humberto Calzada and his wife, Carmen.  Guests toured the artist's studio and got a glimpse of his evocative architectural works and of a series he is preparing for an upcoming exhibit.  The Cuban-American University of Miami graduate has enjoyed an ever-widening circle of acclaim over a career spanning more the 35 years.
