“Foreverglades” brings an invasion of wild animals to Miami during Art Basel 2012
Group that brought pink snails to Miami Beach now bring Everglades-inspired animal art
For two months, weird animals will crawl all over the Freedom Tower downtown, thanks to "Foreverglades". The 300 or so species, ranging from gators to frogs to turtles, won’t actually move, as they are made from resin, recycled plastic and aluminum.
They are participants in an environmental awareness campaign, presented by Galleria Ca d’Oro (they brought us some giant pink snails a few years back) and Miami-Dade College, with support from a bunch of European consulates. The artists are European as well, and did intense research into local animal life.
Environmental programs will accompany the temporary resin residents. Through Jan. 26, the Freedom Tower, 600 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; www.for-everglades.com.
