Real Fall Leaves Come to Miami Courtesy of Artist Paula Crown
This weekend we was doing some research for our annual photowalk, this year being at the Design District. Suddenly, the most picturesque photo location was revealed in plain sight. Red, yellow and orange fall colors where scattered all over the corner of NE 39th street and NE 1st street with real fall leaves. A quick interview with the young volunteers that were recreating the Fall in Miami installation led me to the artist and co-creator Paula Crown. Paula Crown is an artist from Chicago shipped over 900 pounds of treated Oak foliage to the Miami Design District to give us a taste of what “real” Fall feels like.
This injection of autumnal color at the corner of NE 39th St and NE 1st Ave was a playful intervention by the artist. Residents and visitors are encouraged to embrace the transposed charms of a northern clime and the changing of the seasons in southern Florida. Special thanks to all the students and the administrators from Design Architecture Senior High who helped make the project possible. This is a definite stop during Miami Art Week and a will do stop during BaselMeet 2, December 5th at 12pm. Follow us on Instagram for more details.
