The Bal Harbour Cultural Series had another marquee event as Mitchell Kaplan’s Books & Books at the Bal Harbour Shops hosted a book signing for A Feast for the Senses, a new book by Lin Arison.
Detailing Arison’s journey through Umbria with the New World Symphony, Arison has essentially written a travel book complete with contact information of the places they visited.
Les Lalanne at Fairchild
Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden proudly presents the U.S.’s largest outdoor exhibition of works by French sculptors Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne as part of its renowned, annual visual art program. Les Lalanne at Fairchild features more than thirty sculptures, including works never before publicly exhibited in the U.S., such as Claude Lalanne’s Dimetrodon II (1998), a unique copper and steel topiary shaped in the form of a dinosaur from the Permian period, displaying a large Marlin-like fin and spouting water through shark-like teeth; and François-Xavier’s Canard sur L’Eau; Genie de Bellerive Grand Noir (2007), a young owl with its wings spread in tribute to artist Max Ernst, and hovering upon a tall, abstract pedestal in homage to Constantin Brancusi, a close friend of the Lalannes
