As one of the most active programs of its kind in our National Parks, AIRIE (Artists in Residence in Everglades) has welcomed over 180 artists, writers, choreographers and musicians as artists-in-residence in the Everglades. The organization recognizes that artists are some of the most effective communicators when it comes to the critical issue of environmental preservation. The result is a contemporary gallery and art space filled with meaningful works not found elsewhere — it’s worth a look even if your walls, floors and tabletops are full. For the first year ever, AIRIE will be participating with a booth at the Untitled Art Fair during Miami Art Week, exhibiting original and print edition works by current and former resident artists. A photo mural, hanging work and sound work will be presented to the fair’s nearly 40,000 visitors; AIRIE.org.
