The animal meets the aesthetic in this year’s
Endangered: Art For Apes, a mixed-media
exhibition that celebrates all that remains wild
in our world.

Sometimes the deluge of information regarding climate
change and habitat loss can seem disheartening.
Where should one begin to make a change? In a
refreshingly avant-garde answer, Dr. Lindsay Matheson
and the Center For Great Apes have arranged an arts
extravaganza highlighting those portions of our planet
most in peril. With proceeds benefiting the Center
For Great Apes, a Florida-based sanctuary that offers
rehabilitation for abused orangutans and chimpanzees,
Endangered: Art For Apes showcases artists from around
the world coming together in defense of our planet. With
an opening week featuring DJ’s, live music and a fashion
show, Miami will surely be going bananas for this truly
exotic artistic event. The exhibition will take place from
Nov. 30-Dec. 3 at Dade Heritage Trust; 190 SE 12th Ter.;
