Perez Art Museum Miami turns its collection 'Inside Out'March 15, 2017 | In the Press
See the Roy Lichtenstein along that traffic circle in Biscayne Park? That Robert Rauschenberg in Opa-Locka? The Jose Bedia in Overtown? Starting this week, some 50 prints by contemporary painters and sculptors will debut in public spaces all over Miami and North Miami neighborhoods, reproduced on billboards erected in parks, on street corners and in front of buildings.
The Perez Art Museum Miami’s “Inside Out” project, which re-created the works from its permanent collection, is designed to help acquaint Miami-Dade residents with strong examples of local and highly collected art. Also on display are prints from Kiki Smith, Ed Ruscha, Edouard Duval-Carrie, Hernan Bas and Beatriz Milhazes.
The Knight Foundation-supported project will host a reception 3-6 p.m. Saturday, March 18, in Biscayne Park. Future receptions will be hosted March 25 in Overtown and March 31 in Opa-Locka.
