Miami New Times

Florida Is Nature Artist Talk. Pinecrest Gardens was once known as Parrot Jungle, a lush attraction that drew flocks of visitors from around the world to watch birds fly. Though the parrots are gone, the park is still covered in gorgeous vegetation and tree canopies that demand to be seen. Pinecrest Gardens hosts a monthly Florida Is Nature Artist Talk and interactive experience at the “FIN (Florida Is Nature)” exhibit in the Hibiscus Gallery. This month’s speaking artist is Xavier Cortada, whose work is recognizable by anyone who has driven around Miami. His murals reflect the mangroves and other native wildlife of the region. Stay abreast of the art coming out of Miami-Dade and our natural environment in one fell swoop at this monthly event. 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, January 10, at Pinecrest Gardens, 11000 Red Rd., Pinecrest; 305-669-6990; pinecrestgardens.org. The talk is free with $5 park admission.
