A new art exhibition highlights the importance of Miami's shade trees as a community gathering place and resource to fight climate change.

  • "Under a Simple Tree: The Canopy Policy Project," a collection of works by Brandon Clarke, aims to spark a conversation about the inequitable distribution of shade trees in Miami-Dade County.
  • The mixed-media artwork draws on oral histories from different neighborhoods and utilizes natural fibers, leaves and bark.

If you go: The exhibition, presented by Hampton Art Lovers and Green Space Miami, opens on Friday at Green Space Miami, located at 7200 Biscayne Blvd.
