Britto to Design Lauren’s Kids License Plate

Internationally recognized artist Romero Britto will design the newly approved Lauren’s Kids specialty license plate in support of the foundation’s efforts to prevent child sexual abuse through education and awareness.

“Nothing is more important than keeping Florida’s innocent children safe and, through the sale of these license plates, we will be able to greatly expand our efforts,” said Lauren Book, M.S. Ed, founder of Lauren’s Kids. “Prevention is our number one priority, and we know 95 percent of child sexual abuse can be prevented through education and awareness. The Lauren’s Kids foundation is very grateful to Governor Scott and the Florida Legislature for this exceptional opportunity.”

Britto, an acclaimed contemporary pop artist, is known for his use of pulsating colors and bold patterns as a visual language of hope and happiness. He has created artwork for such companies as Disney, Coca-Cola and Audi, and his work is prominently displayed on buildings and in galleries in South Florida and around the world.

“It’s so wonderful to be able to support such an important cause with my friends Lauren and Ron Book,” said Britto, whose bold and colorful style is a perfect complement to the mission of Lauren’s Kids to increase awareness and provide hope.

Last week, Governor Rick Scott signed HB 7125 into law, approving several specialty plates including one for Lauren’s Kids. Production will begin once each plate receives 1,000 pre-orders, or vouchers. Supporters of the Lauren’s Kids foundation and its mission, as well as Florida art enthusiasts, can pre-order a specialty license plate voucher at www.LaurensKids.org.
