The Parks Project exhibitions took place over five months and featured one artist and installation per month beginning in January of 2010. Five South Florida artists – Xavier Cortada, Tim Curtis, Wendy Wischer, Daniel Fila and Francesca LaLanne – worked with Miami-Dade Parks Naturalists to develop site-specific work for installation in five Miami-Dade parks utilizing the natural environment and the issues facing our natural resources, in order to raise public awareness.
Photography exhibition by by award-winning photographer Peter Dooling documents site-specific art installations by five artists over five months in five parks.
The Parks Project
The Parks Project, with support by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, and Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, was conceived and developed by Miami-Dade Parks Division of Arts and Culture because of its strong commitment to the arts and the natural environment. The Parks Project takes the best of South Florida with its lush tropical environment and pairs it with the best in visual arts. For further information on the Parks Project, please call 305-755-5455.
