TRIBUTE TO APPLE
The Bass Museum of Art pays homage to Steve Jobs, co-founder and former CEO of Apple, by displaying "Apple," a 38-by-38-inch silkscreen piece created by pop artist Andy Warhol. In light of Jobs’ recent death, the museum decided to honor the American inventor by sharing one of its contemporary works with its visitors. Warhol’s "Apple" is part of the artist’s famous 1985 "Ads Portfolio." Andy Warhol’s "Apple" is also a piece of artwork from the permanent collection of the Museum. Noon-5 p.m. Wednesday-Sunday. Bass Museum of Art, 2100 Collins Ave., Chad Oppenheim lobby, Miami Beach. Free for members. $6 seniors and students. $8 others. Details: www.bassmuseum.org.
