Plan(T): Miami Mangrove Forest, a solo exhibition
September 19, 2019 @ 8:00 am - January 11, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
Xavier Cortada invites you to go and stop by the Miami-Dade Public Library System’s Main Library and other 50 libraries from September 19, 2019 – January 11, 2020 to witness the installation of his latest county-wide project, Plan(T).
Plan(T) aims to expand South Florida’s mangrove forest by asking residents to plant mangrove propagules, or seedlings, in their own backyard or front yards. Mangroves are salt-tolerant plants that act as natural barriers against storm surge, sequester carbon dioxide and help grow our native tree canopy. Cortada’s project features these mangrove seedlings in compostable cups in a grid like system on library windows.
So stop by and check out one of his Plan(T) installations and also try to catch one of Cortada Projects Plan(T) library presentations to learn more about the project and how you can get involved!
