Young artist with Down syndrome hosts first exhibition Saturday in Weston


The work of Daniela Jahn Cano, a 24-year-old artist with Down syndrome, will be unveiled during a reception at 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5 at the Art Institute of Weston, 2900 Glades Circle, Suite 160.

The free exhibit highlights more than 80 of her works.

The exhibit, called "I am a Down Syndrome Artist," will remain on display throughout the month. It is the first exhibit for the Venezuelan woman, who has been expressing herself through art since she was a girl.

She is the granddaughter of internationally known artist Conchita Firgau, the owner of the Art Institute of Weston. She spends her summers with Firgau in Weston, where she has developed as an artist.

I would be interested in purchasing one of Daniela's paintings, if you would be so kind as to direct me to where I could do that.

Hi Alecia,

I don't have a direct contact of the artist. I would check with the Art Institute of Weston at 954-659-9050 or visit
