Miami Beach Regional Library presents Art Exhibition: Rejoice Always by Daniel Marosi

Miami Beach Regional Library 227 22 Street, Miami Beach, FL on May 24, 2023

Daniel Marosi’s text-based work is part of the “Rhema Word Series”, which examines the relevance of Biblical instruction to contemporary values. Investigating the implicit authority of news, music, and advertising to influence behaviors, Marosi layers multiple phrases with scriptural verses, allowing individual letterforms to become a visible meditation on the intangible substance of faith.

MAY 24 @ 10:30 AM – 11:00 AM

Today the WEAM Collection includes over 4000 works of international art, ranging from 300 BCE to the immediate present. In terms of its quality, diversity and incomparable profile of erotic art, the WEAM stands out clearly from other museum collections.

Alongside its mission to familiarize the general public with erotic art, the WEAM’S other prime objective is the ongoing expansion of its Collection. We collect, preserve and present works of erotic art of the highest quality from diverse cultures. We embrace our responsibility to engage and educate our community, to contribute to cultural knowledge of erotic art in history.

Sea Turtle Season

Sea Turtle Season

April 1 to October 31, 2023

Loggerhead, Green Turtle, and Leatherbacks come to our beaches every year to lay their eggs. All three of these species are protected by state law so it’s important that we work together as a community to help our marine friends. Sea turtle season begins earlier in Miami Beach to account for earlier Leatherback nesting season.

Keep the following tips in mind during the sea turtle nesting season:

  • Never approach turtles emerging from the sea or disturb or harass nesting turtles.
  • Stay clear of marked sea turtles nests on the beach.
  • Close curtains or blinds at night to prevent interior lights from shining onto the beach.
  • Cover, shield, or dim bright lights that face the beach.
  • Spread the word! Tell your friends and neighbors that sea turtle season is here.

Take a look at our sea turtle education page to learn about how you can help sea turtles and their hatchlings this season!
