During Coral Gables Art Walk, a night of fine arts and music awaited art enthusiasts where the “Art in the Breezeway Project” led by Mike Thompson   presenedt its monthly al-fresco art offerings.

For years, the successful “Art in the Breezeway Project” has hosted established and emerging artists in a group show that is free to the public but manages to raise funds from voluntary donations to purchase art supplies for students.

Some people may recall Cuban-born Rodez from the days when he served as Chair of Miami Dade‘s Arts in Public Places during the mid-1990s to his stint as Editor of Herencia Magazine.

Others have seen his solo show at Coral Gables Domingo Padron Gallery in 2011 and more recently his participation with a white giant inflatable sculpture with the Giants in the City International exhibition which was also recently exhibited at Bayfront Park during Art Basel Week 2011.

At the Museum Plaza, Rodez will exhibit paintings, drawings, fine art photography and two of his giant inflatable sculptures “Lucky Link” and “Velocity.”

“I created a series called “Imagining Liberation” that takes the iconography of a broken chain to represent freedom,” said Rodez.

“In my latest detailed graphite pencil piece ‘Searching for the Crevice’ I utilize nature to express a message about the human difficulties of finding one’s ideal mate or soulmate,” added Rodez.
