This event is presented by the city of Coral Gables, in conjunction with the recently inaugurated site-specific artwork by world-renown American artist, Kiki Smith, on Giralda Plaza in downtown Coral Gables. Titled Blue Night, the artwork will be installed on Giralda Plaza until February 28rtg, 2022.
Smith’s work depicts 42 suspended animal constellations made from transparent blue plexiglass with mirrored drawings bonded to the surface. The figures highlight the stars comprising the actual constellations on both sides of the artwork with holographic vinyl. The art display will also have a special Augmented Reality (AR) experience to transform the original drawing into an interactive piece viewers can move to align with the constellation or position for an inspired selfie. Kiki Smith’s Blue Night is sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture. Art lovers and students can download Smith’s free coloring book through the duration of the exhibit as well an onsite augmented reality element of the artwork by visiting www.coralgables.com/kikismith.
