New Art Debuts in Miami Design District

The Miami Design District continues to offer an array of art exhibits and opportunities for international and local artists to display their unique artwork. To help diversify its collections, the Miami Design District offers art tours throughout the district while adding new art initiatives, including A.L. Steiner’s Ecofeminism Billboards, Criola Mural, LALANA Exhibit, and Locust Projects Exhibit.

A.L. Steiner’s Ecofeminism Billboards

In this double billboard, Miami-born artist A.L. Steiner presents a photographic diptych highlighting the beauty of Earth’s vocalities. Steiner portrays prolific land defenders such as Berta Cáceres, Rachel Carson, Marjory Stoneman Douglas, Winona LaDuke, Wangari Maathai, Vandana Shiva, Penny Whetton, and so many others who worked tirelessly to remediate and repair human-based destruction to preserve life on the planet.

Location: 2nd Ave & 41st St, Miami

Criola Mural

Acclaimed muralist Criola has significant murals in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Paris and the Miami Design District. The artist’s massive 39 by 137-foot display in Jungle Plaza is her largest mural to date and her second public work in the U.S. The work portrays Afro-Brazilian ancestors in ritualistic performance, accessing ancient forest wisdom for medicinal purposes and transcending thresholds of knowledge. 

Location: 3801 NE 1st Ave, Miami

LALANA Exhibit

The LALANA Exhibition is a design initiative that works with modern and contemporary Argentine artists to reimagine their original artworks as functional pieces bred in local techniques and noble materials. The exhibition features three textile pieces based on paintings by Roberto Aizenberg, a floor piece and a sculptural chair by Luis Fernando Benedit.
