Join us for an Artist Conversation and Exhibition Opening for two new exhibitions, Cut: Abstraction in the United States from the 1970s to the Present and Spheres of Meaning: An Exhibition of Artists’ Books.

Artist Conversation (3-4pm)

Join Chief Curator, Amy Galpin Ph.D., for a conversation with Miami-based artists Loriel Beltran and Carol Todaro. In anticipation of the opening celebrations, Beltran and Todaro sit down with Galpin to discuss their rigorous practices. A new large-scale painting by Beltran will be featured in Cut: Abstraction in the United States from the 1970s to the Present. Todaro completed a new installation for Spheres of Meaning: An Exhibition of Artists’ Books. Beltran and Todaro are long-time Miami residents with distinctly different practices. Both artists contributed critical ideas to the formulation of these exhibitions.

Seating is limited. Please arrive on time to secure your seat.
