Artist Sandy Skoglund gives a lecture as her room-sized installation "Breathing Glass" is unveiled. Her first work to incorporate glass, along with her signature photographs, "Breathing Glass" features thousands of individually created, mechanized glass butterflies that float against blue glass panels. A glittering glass mosaic covers the floor, amid floating upside down figures throughout the space. 7-8 p.m. Lecture at the Storer Auditorium at the University of Miami’s School of Business, 5250 University Drive, Coral Gables, followed by a reception at the Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami, 1301 Stanford Drive, Coral Gables.
