Toys Art Us and Peregrinos

Choreographer Twyla Tharp once said, “Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.” So if you didn’t get a vacation at Christmas, go on a trip at this weekend’s Second Saturday Art Walk. Wynwood and the Design District’s galleries open at 7 p.m. Curator’s Voice Projects has two worthy exhibits curated by Milagros Bello. “Toys Art Us” continues in the tradition of Jeff Koons, showing 25 contemporary artists dealing with youth and play. Mariano Costa Peuser molds a bicycle out of dollar bills that leaves a trail of greenbacks under its tires. “Peregrinos (Pilgrims)” consists of photographs from artistic duo Atelier Morales, who recontextualize icons such as Lady Di and Charlie Chaplin as well as our collective memories of their lives and deaths.
