Hurricane Andrew Mural On Display at The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum - now through September 2

Hurricane Andrew Mural On Display through September 2

The mural resulted from a collaboration among artists Dena and Stewart Stewart and Barbara Phillips and her magnet classes at Mays Middle School in Goulds, Florida. Goulds was one of the areas in South Florida hardest hit by Hurricane Andrew on August 24, 1992.
The Mays Middle School students ranged in age from 12-14. The mural, painted on 16 door-sized panels, is based on what was seen, heard and felt during and after the storm. The devastating after effects were expected to be a part of their lives for a long time. One of the mural panels is signed by (then President) Bill Clinton and his wife, Hillary Clinton.
Also on display, a series of 7 large photographs taken by Barry Fellman, which show the dramatic effect Hurricane Andrew had on the Kendall Tamiami Airport.
