A MONUMENT by JAMES MASTIN
Sandra Riley has donated the entire edition of her latest book
"The Lucayan Taino" to Crystal Parrot so that 100% of the proceeds
can go toward the making of a monument in Miami
to honor indigenous peoples.
This bronze sculpture by artist James Mastin is the model for a
life-size public installation. It depicts a family
dancing in the water with dolphins, celebrating life;
there is a space for us to take hands with them.
THE MIAMI CIRCLE
In a small effort to take care of our Miami Circle,
Crystal Parrot has started a monthly clean-up of the sacred site
and posted small signs asking visitors to curb their pets.
In 2009, Travis Neff produced
"Connections UnEarthed: The Miami Circle Story,"
the docu-short that commemorates the discovery
of the archaeological site in the heart of downtown.
It premiered at Miami's historic Gusman Center for the Performing Arts
as part of the Miami Borscht Film Festival.
THE MARIAH BROWN HOUSE
Crystal Parrot produced the full length play "Mariah Brown" by Sandra Riley.
It premiered at the Ransom Everglades School Pagoda in 2003.
At that performance, an audience member handed us a check
to support the restoration of Mariah's home on Charles Avenue.
Crystal Parrot made a commitment to save that money --
and many donations like it -- for when the time comes to
take what Mariah Brown had built more than 100 years ago
and turn it into an interactive museum for the community
in the heart of Coconut Grove.
