Fresh art at Miami International Airport

MIA Latin America2

Miami International Airport and Agencia EFE, the world’s largest Spanish-language news agency, are presenting an exhibition of 30 images by EFE photographers from the last decade titled Latin America: Celebrating the Joy of Life (Latinoamérica: Fiestas Populares, Tradición y Fiestas).

The exhibition, located pre-security on the departures level between MIA’s North and Central terminals, celebrates and honors the history and folklore of Central and South American countries through their popular festivals or fiestas, such as carnival season and the Day of the Dead.


MIA has also just kicked off Forging Aluminum, an exhibition of aluminum sculptures by Miami artist R.F. Buckley.

The exhibit is on display in MIA’s Central Terminal Gallery (just past the Concourse E security checkpoint) and, according to the artist, the work “explores aluminum’s representational capabilities, most particularly through their highly wrought surfaces which replicate the textural nuances of draped materials.”
