This opening reception starts after Art Basel closes, but is a nice way to mesh into the winter season here in South Florida. Visit the Dorsch Gallery in the Wynwood district on Saturday, December 12th, for the unveiling of Brandon Opalka’s mural titled  “Nature is Imagination Itself.”

The mural spans the entire length of Dorsch’s gallery western exterior wall, and stems from an idea Opalko had when he was watching Ken Burns’ documentary “The National Parks.”

Opalko’s background is in graffiti art. He now paints, trying to explore a historical context with some of his pieces.

The reception takes place from 7 to 10 p.m.
