URBAN APPEARANCES – Cypress Hall
The objective of this summer camp is to propose the conceptualization of a series of technologically informed spatial art installations and interactive urban spaces/objects for the Village of Pinecrest. The proposals go back to the drawing, the model, and the photomontage to generate a series of interactive ecosystem installations within the Village, linked by smart and visual trajectories that will conform a unified Master Plan. The results will be presented to the Village. The summer camp encourages youth to take over the Village by thinking its public spaces, through creative exercises that intelligently respond to the context. The workshop Includes: a beautiful indoor and outdoor setting, daily talks by architects, designers and artists, materials, participation certificate, report of the workshop (PDF format), lunch and refreshments.

Ages: 13 to 18 years old
Session Dates: Monday, June 11 through Friday, June 15

The Cactus and Succulent Society began an educational initiative with Glades Middle School in 1992. Cathi Rivera, a 32 year veteran art teacher at Glades, has been inspiring her students to create magnificent paintings and drawings of these beautiful succulents and cacti as part of this educational program. Their beautiful art exhibit, juried by the Cactus and Succulent Society, awards prizes to these talented students, and can be viewed in the Pinecrest Gardens Historic Entrance for the duration of the show. Many of these art pieces are available for purchase.
