Artist: Roberto Juarez
Inspired by the lush landscape and indigenous traditions of Florida, MIA Flower Fence juxtaposes botanical style renderings of Florida wildflowers with geometric patchwork designs of the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida. A glimpse of Miami's clear skies and starry nights celebrates the splendor of Florida's tropical climate and blossoming gifts of nature.
