Umbrella Sky, Coral Gables – USA

The Umbrella Sky Project is a travelling art installation which has previously been in Paris & Lisbon. It arrived in Miami on June 13th 2018 and will only be here for a couple more weeks (until September 16th 2018 I think) so if you're in Miami or will be visiting soon, go go go!

The art installation is currently at Giralda Plaza in Coral Gables which is a lovely city south of Miami, Florida. Giralda Plaza is a one block away from Miracle Mile and is an avenue with lots of restaurants with outdoor seating. It seems like the place to go for a spot of lunch or a nice dinner. There are lots of restaurants to choose from including GreenLife Organic Bistro which looked lovely and had we not already eaten, I would have gone here for a salad, wrap or protein bowl.

The Umbrella Sky Project was created by a Portugal-based creative agency called Sextafeira and is made up of 720 colourful umbrellas suspended above the plaza swaying in the Floridian breeze.

It's such a great instillation for many reasons. It makes you look up and enjoy something beautiful. It is fun for anyone from young children, teenagers, young adults and mature adults. Who doesn't want to see a street flooded with bright colours?! It is bringing locals and tourists to Coral Gables who are surely helping the area's local businesses. It can be used as a shade from Miami's hot sun and tropical rain storms but also, you're bound to get lots of new likes & followers on Instagram from all your new colouful photographs!
