By now, you have probably seen it on your Instagram feed: a small army of floating umbrellas, mercifully providing some much-needed shade in the heart of Coral Gables. Naturally, you want to see this for yourself. Here’s everything you need to know about Miami’s newest piece of public art.

What is it? It’s called the Umbrella Sky Project and it’s a traveling installation that’s already hit cities like Paris and Lisbon. The installation consists of 720 colorful umbrellas hanging overhead. The whole thing makes a dazzling canopy.

Where is it? Find it in Coral Gables, located on the 100 block of Giralda Plaza.

Why should you care? It’s cool! And super Instagrammable. Plus, it actually provides some decent shade, which will make your day of strolling the Gables so much more bearable this summer.

How long will it be here? Sadly, not forever. Umbrella Sky will be in Miami for the next 60 days. After that, it’s on to the next city. So don’t procrastinate! Get out there and see it.
