Brickell Urban Encounters, the 2nd Banco do Brasil Americas Cultural Series, features Yutaka Toyota, renowned for shaping steel into geometrically complex forms accented with vibrant patterns. The Japanese-Brazilian sculptor, who lives in São Paulo, is celebrated globally for his art in public spaces.

The display is open weekdays during business hours, from Dec. 1 through Feb. 27 at 800 Brickell Ave., Ste 103; BBAmericas.com.
