mixed media, paint, and glitter, on miami marine stadium seat
This piece serves to recall the sweet moments at the Miami Marine Stadium -- the time spent with family and friends, be it parasailing, enjoying a concert, or simply laughing. “Sweet Memories” is a reminder of those sweet times that have lasted generations.
In 2016, several hundred original seats were removed from Miami Marine Stadium to promote Heineken USA’s successful “Save Your Seat” crowdfunding campaign. After the campaign, the leftover seats were distributed to local artists who were interested in using found objects to create artwork that celebrates the stadium. The goal? Generate awareness of Miami Marine Stadium, its cultural significance to South Florida, and its ongoing restoration.
