Larger Than Life Sculptures in Miami

An outstanding selection of more than a dozen larger-than life sculptures will be featured in Miami, the first exhibition of this magnitude with 12 locations and approximately 18 pieces. ‘Manolo Valdés: The Legacy’ will open in time for the celebration of Miami Art Week, with a public event at Doral Central Park on Saturday, December 5, 2020 at 11:00 a.m., all produced by the Doral Contemporary Art Museum (DORCAM) and sponsored by Miami-Dade County. 

In partnership with the City of Doral, the monumental sculptures will be installed in the main public parks of the City of Doral, including Doral Central Park, Downtown Doral Park, MAU Park, Morgan Levy Park, Doral Legacy Park and Doral Glades Park, as well as other selected locations.  The Doral Contemporary Art Museum (DORCAM) exhibition will be the largest exhibition of his epic sculptures to date. 

“With Art Basel not occurring this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, residents and visitors can safely experience art, considering that public art is probably the safest way to enjoy art in the current global health conditions,” said Dr. Flor Mayoral, co-founder of DORCAM. “The Legacy by Manolo Valdés will be the largest exhibition ever for this world-renowned contemporary art master.” 

The exhibition will be on view for six months, until June 2021, with several programs organized around the exhibition throughout its duration, such as guided tours, educational programs for students, public workshops and lectures, photography competitions, pop-up exhibitions, performances, and the publication of a special-edition book, among others.  

“We are sure this grandiose exhibition will bring a lot of joy in a year when good news has been scarce, and it is sure to attract numerous visitors,” said Marcelo Llobell, co-founder of DORCAM. 

The sizeable scale of this urban exhibition by one of the most influential artists of our times will transform the city into an experiential space and will put Miami-Dade County in the company of other great capitals, where the artist has also shown his monumental sculptures in public places. Additional support for this exhibition has been provided by Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and The Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau. For more information on the exhibition, please visit www.Dorcam.org.
