From Art Is About’s recent post about John Bailly’s “The City”:

His work questions what it means to have an urban identity when a city’s physical, commercial, and cultural frontiers no longer have easily identifiable boundaries.

He reminds us through the recent discovery of the Tequesta Indian Settlement on the Miami River of the many layers of the past our cities are built on. Bailly uses this newly unearthed archaeology to link Miami to its roots and ground our idea of who we have become as Miami has emerged during the last decade as a major center of international culture, commerce and tourism.
