The New Sky

January 2019

It rustles with the breeze and shimmers like a school of shiny fish. For those of us who miss the rainbow hues of the Umbrella Sky installation above Giralda Plaza, the sky is back, this time as the Sunlit Sky. Brought to you by the same Portuguese firm that created the Umbrella Sky, the new installation consists of 27,500 strips of silver and gold strips that glimmer in the sunlight and sway with the wind. The new sky was officially dedicated Dec. 14 and will remain aloft for three months. Already the Lonely Planet web site has declared “You’ll be dazzled if you visit the City of Coral Gables…” We’ll keep you posted on Instagram traffic.
