The Reclamation Project exhibit included an installation of 252 red mangrove seedlings (in clear, water-filled cups) lined up on a glass wall in the western portion of the museum and two continuous-loop videos:  "18-mile" and "Reclamation."  Miami artist Xavier Cortada's aim was to remind us of what our community was like before all the concrete was poured.
