AIRIE Billboards Over The Porch
Monday, September 28, 2015 @ 4:00 am
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, FL 33132 United States
This season, artists will begin re-wilding Miami through AIRIE’s Wild Billboards project, initiated with support from the Knight Arts Challenge just in time for the National Park Service’s centennial year. Porch denizens will get to experience some of these billboards close up – they will be installed on the perimeter of the space. The billboards—photographs by AIRIE fellows Franky Cruz and Rebecca Reeve, demonstrate responsible stewardship for our local and global communities.
Reeve used curtains to represent our “social fabric,” which served as visual connectors to the familiar when photographing landscapes in the Everglades.
Cruz wore the metaphorical skin of a creature in his billboard image, which seems to question human identity and behavior and how it relates to the creatures of this planet. Embodying this white bird created an empathic connection between the human and our majestic natural environment.
