On Saturday, March 14, 2015, the PAMM Contemporaries trekked west to the Everglades for a special art crawl with AIRIE, an artist residency program in the Everglades. The Everglades has been a source of inspiration for many of Pérez Art Museum Miami’s collection artists, including Christy Gast and Mark Dion.
The group explored the Great River of Grass’ beauty on airboats before stopping at a secluded, private island for a post-ride party. Artist Jason Hedges, known for his food installations, created a delicious alligator “swamp stew” especially for the occasion. Contemporaries cooled down with ice cold beer from Biscayne Brewing Company and enjoyed the company of tiny, and large, swamp creatures before riding the airboats off into the sunset.
