Now through January 8, 2017 

Colombian-born, Miami-based artist Federico Uribe creates magical creatures and playful installations from everyday objects.

Boydell Shakespeare Gallery Engravings
Now through January 8, 2017

Interest in the writings of William Shakespeare, particularly his plays, flourished in the 1770s and 1780s. Literary critics, theatrical performers, and playwrights all agreed that he was the finest dramatist in the history of the English language. These engravings focus on scenes from plays by the Bard of Avon, and the immortal characters who come to life in Shakespeare’s writings.

Look Here, Look Now: Fashion, Costume, and Style in Art Web.Fashion.2016
Now through January 29, 2017

Visual artists have consistently taken cues from society to create portraits, not just of their contemporaries, but also of the times themselves. One of the key social indicators that artists include in their works is clothing.

Moonstruck: Works on Paper from the MMFA Collection
Now through January 8, 2017

Perhaps no phenomenon of nature depicted in art carries more romantic resonance than images of the moon. Artists throughout history have included it, and its gentle light, to convey a sense of romance in their work.
