    Absolutely Artful April

    Miami in April is absolutely artful with opportunities for culture lovers. Dazzling, don’t miss choice: At Kelley Roy Gallery is Gustav Mahler-inspired “A Song of the Earth,” limited edition iPad drawings printed on paper by award-winning visual artist and classical music writer Sebastian Spreng. Also don’t miss “Eugenio Espinoza: Unruly Supports (1970-1980)” at Pérez Art Museum Miami, with many paintings, photographs, sculptures, postcards and more, spotlighting his 1970s art, reflecting the era’s Latin American avant-garde spirit. On Miami Beach, there’s “At Ease: Miami Beach During the Second World War” at Wolfsonian/FIU, showing how World War II affected the city’s Art Deco ambiance. At Alejandra von Hartz Gallery, don’t miss art by internationally-exhibited Leyden Rodriguez-Casanova, revealing geometric forms distilled from basic domestic materials, from doors to drywall.
