On December 10th, 2009, Miami artist Xavier Cortada will join students from Palmer Trinity School in the dedication of the Reclamation Project "Re-Permanent" Installation in their school.  The eco-art piece consists of 600 mangrove propagules in water-filled cups hanging on the school walls.

Led by Cortada in the ritualistic ceremony, each student will adopt one of 600 mangrove propagules  and place it in a cup hanging on their school's wall.  They will observe and care for their propagule throughout the course of the academic year as it sprouts roots and leaves and grows into a seedling.  Once they mature, these 600 mangrove seedlings we be planted on Biscayne Bay-- building new ecosystems above and below the waterline.

In Fall 2010, and every year thereafter, students will place 600 new propagules inside the cups of this "re-permanent" installation.
