Passengers, an exhibition of Arturo Rodriguez's recent works that offer "a hypnotic meditation on the human condition and the passage of time" features scenes from airports, bus stops, parking lots and train stations. "All are a source of fascination and anxiety for me," Rodriguez notes in his artist statement. "With their constant, yet anonymous flow of traffic, these places embody some of the most impermanent and poignant paradoxes in life. I have composed each picture as both an interior and exterior landscape, in which space becomes a metaphor for loneliness." The show will open with a reception 6-9 p.m. April 27 and run through June 6.

Reclaiming Miami is Lucinda Linderman's solo exhibition of sculptures she created from trash, mostly industrial waste, collected around Miami. Her materials included a 20-foot piece of construction fencing, hangers, shrink wrap and dry cleaning bags collected from Deering Estate, where Linderman is a resident artist.
The exhibition runs through April 29, and will include a performance in which Linderman will wear a giant skirt made from blue and clear plastic bags, a life preserver ring, goggles and a swim cap and "swim" around the space (9 p.m. April 27). Check out Arterpillar's slide show of the exhibition or read her story on the show in Sun-Sentinel's Sunday Lifestyle section.
