AN ECO-FRIENDLY ETHOS: From Eden to Sahara

December 9, 2019      vibes around town

Kimpton Surfcomber joined forces with artist Gustavo Oviedo’s 131 Projects to transform the boutique hotel’s lobby and courtyard into an immersive experience for Art Basel. Focused on sustainability messaging and “upcycled” materials, the exhibit showcased more than 25 local Miami artists and designers who work at the intersection of art, fashion, and eco-friendliness. Titled “From Eden to Sahara,” this group exhibition took its name from a 1920’s book written by American Botanist John Kunkel Small, during his many botanical research expeditions in Florida with agricultural businessman Charles Deering and plant explorer David Fairchild.
