Victor Deupi is a Cuban American architect and architectural historian dedicated to promoting representational painting as a critical component of contemporary art and architecture. Inspired by Italy’s majestic cities, monuments, and landscapes – as well as the preceding generations of architects and artists who immersed themselves in the grandeur of Bell’Italia – his watercolors and paintings represent the timeless expression of architectural form and space. Painted largely in situ, Deupi’s works capture the spirit of art, architecture, and landscape while providing compelling vistas onto classical culture’s enduring legacy in the modern age.

Dr. Deupi received a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Virginia, a Master of Architecture from Yale University, and a Ph.D. in Architectural History & Theory from the University of Pennsylvania. Presently he is a Lecturer in Architecture at the University of Miami, and his book, Architectural Temperance: Spain and Rome, 1700-1759, was published by Routledge in 2015.

This exhibit featuring over 20 original works, opens on Friday, June 5 – Mercedes Benz of Coral Gables Gallery Night Live at the Museum.

In the spring of 2013, Carlos Aleman made a short trip to Kyoto during cherry blossom week. He returned home to Sunrise, Florida and recorded his impressions of Japan as drawings and paintings. Often working in ‘dark chocolate’ acrylic paints, he integrated cosplay, manga, anime, geisha, maiko and samurai into a whimsical style of pop surrealism, ranging from the finely rendered to the loose and experimental. We cordially invite you to experience these reflections of Japan for yourself.

On July 25th, 2015, the city of Santiago de Cuba celebrates its 500th anniversary. Since its foundation, it occupies a privileged place in the island of Cuba because of its geography, its beauty, and the charm of its people. Santiago is a vintage city full of history and unique traditions. It is also the cradle of heroes, poets, writers, painters, musicians and entertainers from Heredia to Compay Segundo, from Desi Arnaz to Emilio Estefan.
This solo photo exhibition encompasses a collection of photographs taken from 2003 to 2014. Together they constitute the photographer’s intimate portrait of the city of his childhood and youth, emotionally rediscovered through his lens during his trips to Santiago de Cuba.
