The City of Coral Gables is turning on the lights.
Illuminate Coral Gables will bring stunning interactive art, video projections, and light sculptures to the streets of Coral Gables. Conceived by Chief Curator Lance M. Fung with Catherine Cathers, Jennifer Easton and Rosie Gordon-Wallace, Illuminate Coral Gables (ICG) has been created for specific outdoor locations throughout Coral Gables. ICG’s eight projects – seven of which are site-specific commissions – include video projections, sculpture, and art installations by a renowned group of local, national, and international artists including Kiki Smith and Cai Gou-Qiang. “It’s such an honor to be working with an amazing group of artists to bring relevant, thought-provoking and meaningful art to the general public through ICG,” said Fung. “The commitment, vision and passion of these creative are only matched by my dedicated and professional colleagues on the ICG team.”
ICG’s educational component, through a partnership with Florida International University’s Art and Art History Department and the Miami-Dade County Public Schools, is robust. Children are invited to participate in ICG through online art-making workshops and competitions with the hope of having in person activities next year.
