OMNIART Miami, 2004
These drawings of mangrove seedlings by Xavier Cortada were initially exhibited at Miami Art Fairs: OMNIART I in December 2004 (above) and OMNIART II in January 2005 (below). The images were used to paint the columns beneath I-95 and create the Miami Mangrove Forest, a metaphoric reforestation of Downtown Miami.
