The weekend is here and there's plenty going on in the Magic City. This weekend our lovely city offers theater, music of nearly all kinds, and pirates. That's right, pirates. So grab some mateys and get to it.
Vik Muniz: Poetics of Perception at Lowe Art Museum: Muniz's images re-create famous works of art. Claude Monet's Haystacks is reimagined using Pantone color swatches. Muniz also used diamonds to re-create publicity shots of Hollywood's legendary divas. These portraits, as well as Muniz's take on Monet, appear in Lowe's exhibition.
Pirate Island at Miami Children's Museum: Kids can attend Pirate Academy, where lessons include how to talk like Jack Sparrow, tie knots like Captain Hook, and find treasure like Long John Silver. And don't forget the plank-walking, cannon-blasting, yo-ho-hos, shiver-me-timbers, and treasure maps.
