The Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU headlines Art Basel season with Mira Lehr: A Walk in the Garden, featuring all new work created by the nationally renowned eco-feminist artist.
Celebrating her sixth decade as a pioneering artist on Miami Beach, the exhibition features ten monumental new paintings, and 180 aerial sculptures that descend from the ceiling of the museum’s main sanctuary.
At the age of 85, Mira Lehr is creating more new works now than at any other period of her career. This new museum show for Art Basel Season emphasises the artist’s reverence for nature and protecting the planet. The exhibition also honours the 60th anniversary of Lehr’s return to Miami Beach from New York, which led to her championing women artists.
“My creation of art has always been based on nature, but now I am more dedicated to ecology and saving the planet. We are all in a terrible dilemma now, the planet is suffering and is in danger. People need to be aware of the danger that is threatening all of us, and we have to work together to reverse this situation,” says Lehr.
