The 700 colorful umbrellas hanging over Giralda Avenue in downtown Coral Gables are part of a traveling art installation called the Umbrella Sky project. 🌈☂️❤️
So what is the Umbrella Sky Project? It’s an internationally recognized public ✨#art
display that has graced streets around the world, including #Paris
The Umbrella Sky Project began in 2011 as a part of the city of Águeda’s famous annual Ágitagueda Art Festival in Portugal. Each year, during the hot summer months of July, August, and September, a handful of the city’s narrow streets gain #colorful
umbrella canopies that provide shade for the pedestrians passing through. Rooftop cables are strung with numerous parasols that help cool the roadways in a creative and cost-effective way, and the sea of umbrellas forms a unique geometric pattern overhead as well as changing shadows on the roadway below.
Don’t miss out the opportunity to see such amazing and unique project!
