Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow is a pop-up public art exhibition that rallies the residents of the city of Hialeah and greater Miami area around local environmental issues. Through genuine and committed collaboration with local artists, businesses, nonprofits and municipal government, we seek to build community cohesion and inspire collective action on the climatic challenges our beautiful city faces. Attendees of this event will be able to see Hialeah the way that we see it: A place with rich cultural heritage, creative talent and artistic history, and – if enough people take action – an even richer future.
