Join us as we celebrate the launch of this art installation!
This July, Giralda Plaza will be transformed into a vibrant and colorful art experience with the installation of the Umbrella Sky Project. Starting Friday, July 13th and continuing over the next two months, hundreds of umbrellas will gently sway over the newly transformed Giralda Plaza, the pedestrian promenade located at the 100 block of Giralda Avenue.
Coral Gables is the first city in South Florida and the third city in the U.S. to host the Umbrella Sky art project, an internationally recognized art display that has graced streets around the world, including Paris and Lisbon. Umbrella Sky in Coral Gables is made possible through a partnership between the City of Coral Gables, the Coral Gables Community Foundation and the Business Improvement District of Coral Gables
Umbrella Sky is the creation of Portuguese Company, Sextafeira, which means Friday in Portuguese.
