Magic Beans in the Stacks
Climb your own magic beanstalk and see some thought-provoking art in an unlikely place. In early October, artist Agustina Woodgate gave a one-night-only performance at the Miami-Dade Main Librarys Auditorium. In Jack and the Beanstalk, Woodgate used materials found in the librarys collections to give the English fairy tale a modern twist. She was joined by artist Federico Nessi and Anthony Spinello, who runs the gallery that reps her. If you missed the show, Growing Up, a photo exhibit cataloging the performance along with others in Woodgates Fairy Tales series, is on display at the library through December 15. See stills from Hansel & Gretel, which dramatized gluttony; Sleeping Beauty, which examined protection; and Rapunzel, which targeted lust and included an exquisitely long and luscious human-hair wig. The library is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. Admission is free.
Mondays-Sundays, 9 a.m. Starts: Nov. 1. Continues through Dec. 15, 2010
