DEEP SEE – An Art Awakening for the Sea @ Art Miami

Join the U.S. Green Building Council Miami Branch at Art Miami for DEEP SEE – An Art Awakening for the Sea.

Conceived by artist Tina Spiro and developed by the MiART Foundation, the DEEP SEE project seeks to leverage the power of art as a means of communication to heighten awareness about and showcase solutions to climate change, marine safety and conservation, and sea level rise. The installation serves as a platform for like-minded organizations dedicated to the sea, as well as educational institutions, multi-media, performance and other related artworks, to create an immersive convergence for the sea leading to an action agenda. By creating an interactive experience for an audience who will enter individual shipping containers, three prominent environmental activist artists have created installations. Each artist has deep ties to both Miami and its environmental issues, which are integral to their bodies of work.

The exhibit is open Tuesday, December 5, through Sunday, December 10 at Art Miami, located at One Herald Plaza (right on Biscayne Bay at the former site of the old Miami Herald Building).

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.
