Hands-on, practical application:
- Join a member of our Horticulture team to explore the challenges of preserving Vizcaya’s living collection (i.e. gardens) in the face of inevitable rain fall, wind, and storm surge.
- Get a taste of a day in the life of an art conservator at Vizcaya with our Collections team. You’ll work with some objects from our Teaching Collection to experience how artworks are maintained in coastal Miami’s harsh environment.
- Hear stories from the folks who oversee construction at Vizcaya about restoration efforts from past hurricanes and what it’s like to plan resilient projects in a race against hurricane season
Take a trip down memory lane with a mini-exhibit of images from Hurricane Andrew’s impact on Vizcaya’s estate.
