University of Miami Lowe Art Museum: Carlos Estévez, Cities of the Mind

Carlos Estévez, 'Citadel' (2017), Oil and Watercolor Pencil on Canvas, 88 x 88 Inches.

The University of Miami Lowe Art Museum presents the most recent project of renowned Cuban-American artist Carlos Estévez, Cities of the Mind features nine large-format paintings that reference the artist's fascination with city plans. Inspired by the Havana of his youth, the Medieval European cities to which he has traveled extensively as an adult, and his abiding interest in symbolic cosmology and origin stories, Estévez has created in this body of new work personal maps of the human mind influenced by ancient cartography. Guest curated by Dr. Carol Damian and generously supported by Laura Blanco, Chris and Susanne Armstrong, and Rafael and Marijean Miyar. This exhibition is on view through May 3, 2020.
