See large-scale, brightly-colored, recyclable plastic alligators, sea turtles, frogs and marsh bunnies crawling up and down and in and around Downtown Miami’s historic Freedom Tower at MDC during Miami Art Week. These unique native South Floridian creatures are part of FOREVERGLADES, an environmentally-minded public installation by William Sweetlove and other members of Cracking Art Group. The animals were selected by the participating artists because of the important role each species plays in the development and history of the local landscape. The exhibition aims to establish a locally conscious perspective focusing on environmental protection, sustainability and advocacy of South Florida’s National Parks and Preserves. Hosted by Miami Dade College’s Museum of Art + Design, in collaboration with Galleria Ca’ D’Oro, the exhibition is generously underwritten by famed Swiss watchmaker Girard-Perregaux. It opens with a public reception that is free and open to all.
Show: Galleria Ca’ D’Oro | Tuesday through Saturday, noon to 5 p.m.
Address: 135 San Lorenzo Ave #130, Coral Gables, FL 33146
