Join us for the Exhibit Evening reception for the February Features show, “Borders of Paradise: The New World in the Eyes of Explorers.” The exhibit includes historic objects, prints, maps and color-plates of Florida and other “new territories” from the 16th through 18th centuries. On loan from the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Daytona Beach, this exhibit is an opportunity to explore past and present perspectives through the imagined narratives of native peoples during early European contact.
Wednesday, February 15, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Exhibit Evenings are free and open to the public and include a curator’s conversation at 7:30 pm. Light refreshments and a cash bar will be available. The exhibit will be on display daily, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, from February 9 – March 25, 2017, and is included with Estate admission.
The Deering Estate offers complementary exhibit viewing nights, highlighting a variety of contemporary and historic exhibitions inside the historic homes. Exhibit Evenings, held on the third Wednesdays per annual schedule, provide an opportunity for the public to interact with artists and curators in a house museum setting.
Cultural Arts Programming at the Deering Estate is made possible with the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami- Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners, and The Deering Estate Foundation, Inc.
