Join ARTECHOUSE, local artist Haiiileen and Surfrider Miami for a Beach Cleanup
Miami start your weekend by giving back to your community with a beach cleanup hosted by ARTECHOUSE Miami and local artist Haiiileen, whose work Agua Haiii is featured in Aqueous, an immersive multimedia installation inspired by Pantone Color of the Year 2020 Classic Blue, on view at ARTECHOUSE. The beach cleanup will be led by The Surfrider Foundation Miami Chapter.
The cleanup kicks off ARTECHOUSE’s partnership with Surfrider. From April 1-14 ARTECHOUSE will donate 10% of proceeds from ticket sales to Surfrider Miami to help in their mission to protect our ocean, waves and beaches.
After the cleanup ARTECHOUSE invites all beach cleanup volunteers to experience Aqueous.
They’ll provide gloves and buckets, but bring your own if you prefer.
What you’ll need:
* Wear reef-safe sun protection and make sure to bring a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated.
* It’ll be a socially distanced event and don’t forget to wear your mask :)!
ABOUT AQUEOUS AT ARTECHOUSE (THROUGH APRIL 14)
Part of a series of immersive experiences inspired by Pantone’s Color of the Year, Classic Blue, Aqueous at ARTECHOUSE Miami, is a digital exploration of light and color through textures, motion, sounds, sensations and their relationship to liquid. Conveying awareness through our own forms of expression, Aqueous was inspired by the healing and connecting powers of the oceans, as well as the dangers they face. Our oceans heal, connect and remind us that we are all part of one blue planet, even under the threat of climate change.
This theme was selected for the Miami location specifically to highlight its place as a coastal city poised to be greatly affected by climate change in the coming years. With Aqueous, the topic of climate change is approached in an abstract and artistic way. The creative team focused on the details of nature that make our planet beautiful, while drawing attention to environmental changes and our shifting oceans. The technology-driven installations highlight the beauty of liquids in nature, like falling water and the texture of light on the ocean. An LED light installation on view on the first level of the art space draws inspiration from bioluminescence, which while beautiful is fueled by warmer seas.
Haiiileen’s piece, Agua Haiii, is displayed upstairs and includes the graceful sounds of whales, which are quickly disappearing from our waters, and garbage picked up off Miami’s beaches and Biscayne Bay, including masks and other PPE. It is Haiiileen and ARTECHOUSE’s hope that visitors will feel an artistic connection to water and its beauty when they visit Aqueous, and take with them the awareness and care that this issue deserves.
