An exhibition showcasing an artist’s Jewish collages is on display at a South Florida Catholic university’s museum. “Symbolism,” which features eight of artist and architect Robert M. Swedroe’s artworks, can be viewed at St. Thomas University’s Archbishop John C. Favalora Archive & Museum, 16401 N.W. 37th Ave. in Miami Gardens, through Jan. 22, 2021. Among the objects and symbols featured in Swedroe’s colorful collages include the Ten Commandments, a blue Star of David, a menorah and more. Swedroe, who lives in Surfside, said the whole exhibition is about Jewish symbolism. He mentioned that he worked on a lot of religious art 47 years ago, when he created most of the exhibition’s collages. [More]
