Miami-Dade County artist-in-residence Xavier Cortada wants you to wipe your neck with his latest artwork.
At the Coral Gables Museum on Thursday, Cortada unveiled a series of paintings highlighting the threat of extreme heat in Miami. He also revealed a cooling towel, printed with one of his designs, which he hopes will keep people cool this summer.
Cortada designed the towels with Mission, a New York company that makes cooling gear for athletes and outdoor workers. Mission will donate 3,000 towels to the county to hand out to its employees and residents. The company will be selling the towels online and donate the proceeds to Cortada’s nonprofit foundation to support its Keep Cool Miami-Dade campaign.
