AIRIE Wild Billboard project, with artwork by Franky Cruz. Initiated with support from the Knight Arts Challenge, AIRIE began its Wild Billboards program in 2015 to bring impactful visual and verbal representations of the Everglades National Park to the urban core of South Florida. In a dramatic change from the usual commercial messages, these billboards challenge pre-existing conceptions of the Everglades and awaken a heightened awareness of wilderness areas just beyond the city but out of sight and sometimes forgotten. This dynamic, high-visibility project targets visitors, commuters, and highway passengers, injecting a refreshing and 'wild' element into the concrete landscape of Miami's highway system.
