The most comprehensive exhibition of the Nobel laureate’s visual art to be held in the US goes on display on Tuesday in Miami at the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum. Forty new pieces by the 80-year-old songwriter will be showcased for the first time.

The exhibition with more than 180 acrylics, watercolors, drawings, and ironwork sculptures will kick off the same week as Art Basel Miami Beach and will run through April 17 with no future stops announced yet. Tickets are $16 and are booked by hourly slots.

“Retrospectrum” includes some of Dylan’s works from the 1960s, starting with pencil sketches he made of his songs such as “Highway 61 Revisited” and “Like a Rolling Stone.”

His works, many borrowed from private collections around the world, include abstract sketches from the 1970s and covers six large rooms. But the vast majority was created in the past 15 years.

“Dylan is able to express himself in so many ways.”
