About Ad Bombing:

AdBombing is a Miami based non-profit organization dedicated to promoting emerging street artists both locally and around the globe. We raise funds to purchase available advertising space and then donate that space to artists within the community to do with it as they see fit. We aim to give talented artists a city-wide stage to share their work, local communities easier access to the artists within their own city, and everyone a more beautiful environment in which to live and work.

If you think the world could use less ads and more art then help us as we crowdfund the purchase of 3 billboards to donate to 3 emerging Miami artists. These boards will be on display in high traffic areas from early October through early December, allowing the artists to share their work with the entire city and the thousands of visitors that will come to Miami for Art Basel. It is our goal to give local communities easier access to art and artists from within their city, and everyone a more inspiring environment in which to live and work.

 Help us make this project a reality by contributing to the campaign and taking advantage of some great perks, sharing the message with your friends online and off, and choosing which artists get awarded with one of our billboards below. Thank you so much for all the love and support you’ve shown along this journey.

Pictures that Will Make You a Stiltstville Activist


Pictures that Will Make you Appreciate Stiltstville

One of Miami’s Hidden gems is Stiltsville. A once fledging community of 16 homes suspended from the pristine waters of Biscayne National Park by wooden stilts. Stiltsville is now a collection of 7 protected homes. The protection of these local treasures did not come easy. The victory was achieved through long court battles between stakeholders and The National Park Service.

Through photography Brian Call preserves the unique qualities and history of this Miami Landmark. His photography brings nostalgia, awareness and inspire the continued preservation of this unique place. Perhaps the rebuilding of Stiltsville to the large community it was once is something that can also be achieved. However, rebuilding could be tricky. For the ecological impact of building on boundaries of Biscayne National Park poses challenges and controversy. Yet the continue preservation and maintenance is an issue we should address and be involved. As does Brian Call’s photographic series on Stiltsville. Below is a preview of Brian Calls Photographic series on the 7 remaining homes of Miami’s unique landmark called  Stiltsville.

To get involved in the continued preservation of Stiltsville’s 7 remaining homes please visit  Stiltsvilletrust.org. (all pictures under copyright by Brian Call)
