ThreeASFOUR: Tree of Life is a new film by the fashion designers threeASFOUR and digital artist Alex Czetwertynski, a visual leap into the unseen dimensions and connections that bind us, our senses, and the universe, using 3D fractal animation. On Mana's exterior, street artist Bradley Theodore has created a set of four portraits of contemporary fashion icons Karl Lagerfeld, Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington, and André Leon Talley. The Florence Academy of Art: Consecrated Reality celebrates the process of creation with painting and drawing; and Ernst Hilger Galerie presents Ángel Marcos: Hasta Siempre, photographs of Havana’s gambling history.
