Opening on July 26th is The Nature Conservancy’s exhibit of Design for a Living World at the Coral Gables Museum located at 285 Aragon Avenue. The Nature Conservancy invited 10 designers to create objects from sustainable materials sourced from around the world. Wood, plants, wool and other organic materials were transformed into intriguing objects, revealing extraordinary stories about regeneration and the human connection to the Earth’s lands and waters.
The exhibit, which premiered at New York’s Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum and traveled to Chicago and Phoenix, showcases the works of Ted Muehling, Stephen Burks, Yves Béhar, Abbott Miller, Kate Spade New York, Isaac Mizrahi, Hella Jongerius, Christien Meindertsma, Ezri Tarazi and Maya Lin. This stop at the Coral Gables Museum will be the final chance to view this beautiful exhibition which opens with a reception featuring the Bombay Sapphire World Experience on Thursday, July 26 at 7 p.m. Tickets for the opening reception, which includes cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, are $20 for Museum members and $25 for non-members.
