Page 3 of 3

Giants in the City

This one is too fun to pass up. Featured at last year's Art Days, Giants in the City is a monumental inflatable exhibition compiled by work from 17 different artists. The huge, squishy artworks comment on the permanence of traditional monuments, and capture the wonder that occurs between art and the viewer. Take a walk through this art you can actually touch Friday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Bayfront Park.

"Fleeting Imaginaries"

A reference to what is imagined and the production of share images, "Fleeting Imaginaries" is part of the 12th Cycle of the Grants & Commissions Program Exhibition. This year's exhibition features work by emerging artists Pablo Accinelli (Argentina); Nayarí Castillo (Venezuela); Marcellvs L. (Brazil); Carlos Martiel (Cuba); Mateo Pizarro (Colombia), and Adrian Regnier (Mexico), and mid-career artists Claudia Joskowicz (Bolivia) and Rosângela Rennó (Brazil). View the collection of works at CIFO Art Space from noon to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
