Exhibit for Cuban American Artist Miguel Rodez at the Coral Gables Museum
On Friday, January 6, 2012 from 6 to 10PM, Miami-based artist Miguel Rodez was the featured artist of a collective exhibition at the new Coral Gables Museum’s Plaza located around the corner from Books & Books at Aragon Avenue.
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.
“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.
