There’s still time to RSVP for the U.S. Green Building Council’s Art Week reception this week.

Join USGBC Miami and a coalition of several other environmental organizations to preview the Freedom in Nature: Waves Above the Horizon installation as part of Freebee’s “FREEDOM” Experiment. This is the first free, collaborative, eco-installation at Art Basel Miami! Come engage in an interactive experience allowing visitors to not only see, hear, smell, and touch, but to actually take part in the masterpiece!Various community artists have found unique ways to pull elements from the waste stream and repurpose them with other materials, sound, and lighting to create an oceanic ambiance.

One of the installations is being created from hundreds of discarded plastic grocery bags. Teams of volunteers have worked for weeks to assemble the canopy called “Waves Above The Horizon.” The exhibit will be featured during the first of a five-day series by FREEDOM in Wynwood. Each day of the series will celebrate “interpretations of artistic expressions, aiming to define the meaning behind freedom.”
