WHAT IS YOUR PURPOSE?
In creating this project, an artist and professor at the University of Miami (elevation 10.85’) in Coral Gables wrote:
HELLO, my purpose is to inform and inspire you to be the change that our society and the life on this planet needs you to be right now. To use art’s elasticity to work across disciplines to connect and engage individuals in bringing about a better future for themselves, others and those not yet born.
