Life at Street Level

The urban fabric is a metaphor for city topography. This provocative exhibit interweaves fiber with photography, photo collage, and installation works to capture an instant view of Miami at the street level that conveys urban resilience.

Nature and History 

This exhibition invites five artists to show outdoor installations. One of them is located in the “Hidden Garden,” and, for the first time in the History of Pinecrest Gardens, four guest artists are using the “Historic Bird Cages” as spaces for artistic experimentation. The proposals reflect on the relationships between Nature and History. How can creative art interventions on historic grounds, including fiber components, engage with the history of the place and address social and environmental issues?
