Architect Paul Rudolph’s name has been much in the news lately as some of his iconic buildings have been demolished or are under the threat of future demolition.

New on the South Florida visual arts scene in the coming week are the opening of a solo show by painter Ryan Sullivan, a Bal Harbour Shops exhibition of experimental fashion and a lecture by author-educator David A. Ross on the need to reimagine art education.
