Xavier Cortada ‘s latest participatory eco-art project in Pinecrest Gardens combines science, art and community by using the growth of mangrove propagules as its focal point.
Plan(T) uses the mangrove as a symbol to represent and tackle the issue of sea-level rise and saltwater intrusion in the South Florida community. With this project, Cortada is creating a future salt-tolerant tree canopy while also stimulating conversation about climate change and the imminent danger of not addressing it. Plan(T) recognizes the issue, creates a symbol for hope, and begins the conversation towards a better future for South Florida.
Come celebrate as we launch “Cortada Projects “ (scroll down) and distribute mangrove seedlings and elevation-marked flags for you to plant at home and be part of the movement for a more resilient and prepared South Florida.

Xavier Cortada ’s participatory art practice is based at Pinecrest Gardens.  
Through exhibitions at the Hibiscus Gallery, installations along the colonnade, and programming at the weekly Farmer’s MarketCortada Projects uses the power of art to engage the public in learning about and addressing environmental concerns. 
Cortada’s hope is that by bringing his engaged practice to Pinecrest Gardens, he can raise awareness about pressing environmental issues, encouraging citizens to do what they can to protect the life currently on the planet, as well as the future generations who will inherit what is left behind.
