The highlight of this year’s Deering Estate Festival of the Arts is a free opening night exhibition on Saturday, Feb. 16, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. A Meet the Artists reception will be held at 6 p.m.
Curator Ralph Provisero invites the viewer to discover artistic interjections placed throughout the historic grounds of the Deering Estate. Unique elements of this exhibition include spontaneous poetry creation and readings by the fire circle, an Artist Bookstore in the Historic Library, and traveling performance piece that “tours” the site.
Dialogues develop between the space and artists with some works confronting the viewer, some on the outskirts of a view, on the outskirts, and some hidden in plain sight.
Guests are welcome to bring blankets, lawn chairs and picnic baskets. Parking is free.
Deering Estate at Cutler is located at 16701 SW 72 Ave., Miami, 33157. For more information call 305-235-1668 or visit www.deeringestate.org
