New exhibit at Miami Children's Museum

A new art exhibit called “Majestic Beauty” opened this past weekend at the Miami Children’s Museum. The exhibit, by Alex Yanes,  is the collection of images that were used in this year’s Publix calendar.  It depicts native mcm-schauss-swallowtail-butterflywildlife of the Florida Everglades that reflect the importance of its eco-system.  Along with vivid colors, Alex Yanes uses bold outlines to define his intricate figures.  His most recent works are multi media, three dimensional images. In early 2007, Yanes was asked to design one of his three dimensional Japanese Koi fish for The Learning Channel’s hit show “Miami Ink”.  It was a perfect combination and before he knew it, Alex’s paintings were used as a backdrop on the television program; gaining him worldwide exposure.
The exhibit will be on display at the museum through August 30, 2009. Entrance to the exhibit is included with your regular paid admission.  There will be more programming throughout the duration of the exhibit.  Visit for more information.

The Museum is open to the general public seven days a week from 10:00a.m. to 6:00p.m.  Regular admission to the museum is free for MCM members and children under 12 months; non-member adults and children are $12 and $15 for non-Florida residents.  For more information contact the Museum at 305.373.KIDS (5437).
