Memories of Miami Activation
Project by Maria Claudia Schubert-Fontes and Adriana Fontes

Following a summer of record-breaking heat, Memories of Miami invites you to preserve your memories through poetry. Your story, painted with thermochromic pigment which vanishes at 77°F and 100°F, will re-emerge with cooler temperatures, symbolizing both the fragility and resilience of our collective memory. This project seeks to spur conversation about Miami’s identity and the parts of our stories that are lost when we experience irreversible climate impacts.

Encounter Memories of Miami at the following O, Miami Poetry Festival events:

Through creative expression, Maria Claudia ‘MC’ strives to inspire meaningful dialogues that drive positive change and awareness. She is passionate about the ways in which the arts can cultivate connections and initiate conversations about the future of our beloved home.

Drawing inspiration from the Reggio Emilia philosophy, Adriana, emphasizes the inherent connection between nature and education. Within her community workshops, Adriana explores the profound interplay between art, nature, and human understanding, fostering a sense of wonder and exploration.
