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 new body of work personal maps of the human mind influenced by ancient cartography. This exhibition was guest-curated by Dr. Carol Damian, former Professor of Art History, Florida International University and Former Director of the Frost Art Museum.
Opening reception with the Artist, which is open to the public, to be held on October 24 from 7 – 9 p.m.
