BE A PART OF THE HISTORY OF MIAMI!
“I AM MIAMI” by artist John William Bailly invites visitors to HistoryMiami to bring printed photos of themselves or others from Miami to collage onto the wall of the artwork. As the exhibition progresses the work will evolve to reflect not just the history of Miami, but also the memory of the visitors to the exhibition “MemoryLab 2017” at HistoryMiami Museum.
So, bring a photo of yourself, a loved one, or someone you feel is important and be a part of Miami history.
