Bird Road Art Walk: Naked Girls, Free Food, Inspiration
Original work by Ernesto Lopez Sao.
The glow of a million Christmas bulbs from nearby Santa's Enchanted Forest cast their brilliance over the Bird Road Art Walk on Saturday as hundreds gathered to view, discuss, and celebrate Miami art.
There were a heavy concentration of Latin American works especially by Cuban and Venezuelan painters. But there was something by and for everybody. We also saw sculptures, installations, and multimedia pieces. It was an awesome showing, and we look forward to more. Here are some pics of what we saw.
