The Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale has landed a traveling exhibition of the female mexican artist Frida Kahlo and her husband Diego Rivera. Their historic contributions to art and their cult following has even had a movie dedicated to both starring Salma Hayek as Frida Kahlo.Take note curator of the PAMM, this the kind of historically significant artists the Perez Art Museum should land for future exhibits and acquire in a dream scenario. Lately, its been a lot of minimalistic work at the PAMM, that which requires the commitment from visitors to read a two paragraph essay included below the title of the piece to understand it. The Miami mindset doesn’t have time for that. Actually the current fast pace social media era does not have time for that. Give the public what they want. Visually striking thought-provoking work and in this case historically relevant. Great job on the part of Fort Lauderdale for bringing this exhibition to South Florida.
Miami Artists Help Terror In the Jungle Come To Life! Opens 9/30
Artist Diana Contreras is one on the artist hard at work at Jungle Island. Come Tuesday their hard work will be revealed as Terror in the Jungle opens its doors to the public. The visual result is a realistic and terrifying inner and outer experience. Took a sneak peak of the floor plan and the artist involved really created a realistic setting from inside and out.
From the creator of Festival of Souls (Demon Mansion), voted Florida’s Scariest Haunted House by Hauntworld.com, Terror in the Jungle will feature a chilling 40 x 22-foot Toxic Zombie Jungle Entrance leading guests through five acres of terrorizing jungle paths and a 10,000 square-foot ancientRuins Pyramid Haunted House. Carefully navigate a dark jungle filled with zombies, demons and military HAZMAT containment units all while being chased by wild mutated animals. Many more surprises wait inside the Ruins Pyramid including booby traps and scary creatures, which will give even the fearless the fright of their life. Those who wet their pants or don’t make it through Terror in the Jungle will be added to aWall of Lost Souls.
