WANDERING THROUGH LANDSCAPES
An exhibition curated by Hartvest Project in collaboration with Adriana Meneses Art, that invites you to embark on a captivating journey through the contrasting and different ways to see our landscapes. The works delve into the essence of distinct yet interconnected worlds: the dynamic urban landscapes that pulse with vibrant energy and the serene rural expanses that breathe tranquility. On view through November 5.
KEEP FOSSILS UNDERGROUND
Xavier Cortada’s “Keep Fossils Underground” exhibition features 18 original paintings from his “EPOCH” series. This year, those works were wrapped around one of Miami-Dade County’s new electric buses, showcasing the fossils of prehistoric animals that remain safely underground when they aren’t burned as fossil fuels. On view through December 3.
Hot_Stuff11 presents Human Nature, featuring the works of Amanda Covach, Angel Marin, Felipe Melendrez, Jefreid Lotti, and Krystal T. Rodriguez. Together they explore the relationship humans have with their direct environment and shed light on sea level rise, natural disaster, and celebrate South Florida flora and fauna. On view through December 3.
