Surrounded Islands

The Surrounded Islands were a project by Christo and Jeanne-Claude in Miami from 1980-1983. Before spreading these huge sheets of hot pink fabric over the surrounding waters of islands in Biscayne Bay, the artists consulting with numerous scientists to make sure they would not be harming wildlife. They also organized a huge cleanup effort on each island before laying out this piece of art. The people of Miami loved the splash of color around their bay and in the end, this art project benefited the natural environment.
