Tiffany & Co.’s Greenhouse is popping up at Aventura Mall from July 16 to August 20. Located near its boutique at the center, the life-size installation celebrates recent home and jewelry collections under the vision of the brand’s new chief artistic officer Reed Krakoff. Collectors can purchase miniature versions of the greenhouse made of solid sterling silver, copper and glass in Tiffany’s hollowware shop. Several female artists such as Laurie Simmons, Shantell Martin and Marilyn Minter, pictured, were commissioned for works incorporating the garden “gem.” Other home and garden wares include terra-cotta flowerpots in Tiffany’s signature turquoise blue and a witty, sterling silver bubble blower. Krakoff’s first jewelry collection for Tiffany, Paper Flowers, is also on display at the boutique. As the name implies, pieces emulate childhood arts and crafts.

The Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach closes this month as it puts the final touches on its expansion and renovation (pictured) by Foster + Partners led by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Lord Norman Foster. In the meantime, the museum resumes much of its popular programming at the nearby Grandview Public Market (1401 Clare Avenue). Register for complimentary activities such as Family Art Pop-Up, where children ages 5-12 learn about works in the collection and make art; Curators’ Conversations for previews of 2019 exhibits, and Member Insights, in-depth presentations by Norton curators and educators reserved for members. Some programs will relocate to other venues: Mini Book + Art continues at various branches of Palm Beach County libraries, while ArtSpeaks, a lecture and luncheon series, moves to the Colony Hotel.
Alto, one of Venezuela’s culinary treasures, expanded to Miami in the form of Obra Kitchen Table. El Bulli-trained toque and founder Carlos Garcia splits his time between his original in Caracas, which often ranks among Latin America’s top 50 restaurants, and his new baby in Brickell. Rather than molecular gastronomy, his pretty U.S. outpost on the bay focuses on cocina sabrosa—everyday dishes done with his professional flair. Centered on a Josper charcoal grill, the menu’s daily specials range from slow-cooked pork pernil to short rib asado negro. He also uses it to cook a rack of lamb served in a plantain mole aside fried eggplant. Whet your appetite with a Mexican-style negroni, which substitutes gin with mezcal and adds a splash of carrot and blood orange juice (pictured)
