This Week's Day-by-Day Picks

WED 16If there's one thing Floridians have seen more of than downed power lines, it's pink flamingos — those hideous, weathered yard ornaments that look older than the Great Pyramids. So you might be surprised to see the truly artful sculptures Francisco Sheuatfashions after the tropical bird. Sheuat's color palette runs from the aquatic to the metallic, all the while craftily disguising the fact that his birds are nothing but papier-mâché and Styrofoam. The pieces range from the usual tropical flare (turquoise and orange color schemes mixed with palm trees) to a more art-deco style (red and black with shards of silver) and even a metropolitan, New York look (streamlined coats of silver, black, and blue). Too bad papier-mâché won't hold up in a rainstorm. Sheuat's exhibit "Migration" is open now through November 30 at Art Expressions (1212 NE Fourth Ave., Fort Lauderdale). Call 954-527-7700, or visit (JB)
