Feminine Forces (1997) by Lydia Azout
Florida International University's (FIU) Frost Art Museum will ring in this month’s Target Wednesdays After Hours (September 12) by welcoming two new exhibitions. Expect video, hand-bound books, and light reflective works in the “FIU Art & Art History Faculty Exhibition.” FIU staffers Tori Arpad-Cotta and R.F. Buckley are the artists behind the show, with Arpad-Cotta contributing an installation of video and mixed media and Buckley showing pieces that play with aluminum and light to recreate South Florida’s magnificent waterways.
Also sampling inspiration from the natural world is Lydia Azout’s “Out of the Ordinary Geometry” exhibit. Large-scale and made of wood and steel, Azout’s sculptures symbolize nature's power and femininity. Both showcases will run through October 21, 2012. Attendees will also be treated to a Fall Arts Preview, getting a first look at each college's upcoming initiatives. Light bites, music, and guided tours will round out the evening. 10975 S.W. 17th St., Miami, 305-348-2890
