Miami’s Secret Floating Village

Saturday, January 13th @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

David Bricker

Inspired by people he met while working on the Christo Surrounded Islands project, David Bricker found himself living aboard chasing stories here in Miami, throughout the Bahamas, and across the Atlantic. Realizing that he was living in a storybook, he wrote about and photographed his adventures. Not only is this talk historically surprising and interesting, it reveals an important truth—that adventure can be had in real life and not just in books and movies.
