Xavier Cortada has worked with groups across the world to produce numerous large-scale collaborative art projects– including peace murals in Cyrpus and Northern Ireland, child welfare murals in Boliva and Panama, AIDS murals in Geneva and South Africa, and eco-art installations on Miami Beach and in the South Pole (through a National Science Foundation Antarctic Artists and Writers Program). In 2008, he’ll bring his art installations to the North Pole.
The Miami artist has been commissioned to create art for the White House, the World Bank, the Florida Supreme Court, the Florida Governor’s Mansion, Miami City Hall, Miami-Dade County Hall, the Miami Art Museum, the Museum of Florida History and the South Pole Station.
