Children’s Exhibition: “Seeking the Essence” by Menena Cottin

Sun, Jul 21—Sun, Jul 28, 2019

“Seeking the Essence” is a multisensory, interactive exhibition by award-winning author, illustrator, and graphic designer Menena Cottin. This exhibition brings fourteen children’s books to life through experiential art installations in English and Spanish. Cottin distills philosophical concepts into their simplest forms and juxtaposes them with vibrant illustrations, allowing audiences of all ages to interact with their compelling narratives.

The exhibition opening coincides with the July edition of Family Day at ICA Miami. Admission is free with RSVP.

Cottin is the author, illustrator, and designer of more than thirty children’s books published internationally. She has also published adult books, including the autobiographical work Cierra los ojos que vamos a ver (Dahbar, 2013).

This exhibition is organized by ICA Miami and the Saludarte Foundation.
