Place and Purpose: Art Transformation in Coconut Grove @ Frost Art Museum - FIU

May 29 - September 19: “This exhibition pays tribute to a Miami community whose history and present are rich in art and culture, including the founding of the Miami Black Arts Workshop and the Coconut Grove Arts Festival (dating back to 1963). Coconut Grove was home to artists like Annette Rawlings, who combined interests in fashion, painting, and ceramics, as well as Owen Lee, a prolific, self-taught artist who worked with paper, tapestries, and sailcloth and countless artists that have worked, and many who continue to work, in the Grove. We are pleased and honored to share many of their works and to tell the story of this artistic Mecca in Miami Dade County,” said museum director, Jordana Pomeroy. Open to the public: Wed- Saturday: 10 am - 3 pm.by appointment only, check online.
