LOWE ART MUSEUM
ArtLab @ The Lowe | GER•MANIA!
April 22, 2015 – May 10, 2016
This edition of ArtLab @ The Lowe explores key artistic movements in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Germany and Austria. Visitors to the Lowe will have the unique opportunity to examine original works of art associated with German Symbolism, Austrian Expressionism, Surrealism, the New Objectivity movement, and German Fluxus. Exemplifying these critical periods are works by Germanic masters Max Klinger (1857-1920), Käthe Kollwitz (1867-1945), Erich Heckel (1883-1970), Oskar Kokoschka (1886-1980), Max Ernst (1891-1976), George Grosz (1893-1959), and Joseph Beuys (1921-86); all of which are drawn from the Lowe’s permanent collection, and all of which will be on view at the Museum from April 22, 2015 to May 10, 2016.

Frank Loesser’s celebrated 1950 musical comedy about rolling the dice and falling in love under the bright lights of Broadway returns to the Ring Theatre.

THE WIRTZ GALLERY
Located in the lobby of the First National Bank of South Miami, each month The Wirtz Gallery presents local & international artists. Gallery hours are Monday to Thursday 9a-4p, and Friday, 9a-6p. Artist receptions are generally held on the second Friday of the month from 6-9p and are open to the public.
In April, the gallery will host nature photographer Paul Marcelini. Growing up in Miami, Paul always loved the outdoors, and is always drawn to the water and the Everglades and not the glitz and glamor of the city. Paul offers the unspoiled scenes of a wild and natural Florida.
In May, the vibrant and dynamic contemporary painting of Hessam Abrishami will be on exhibit. A native of Iran, in his childhood he was greatly influenced by the ancient history surrounding him. He left his home land to expand his awareness of the outside, changing world. His quest for artistic excellence took him to Italy where is pursued his higher education at the Academia di Belle Art Pietro Vanucci, in Perugia.
