About Pioneer Winter
Winter will organize 30 dancers of varying ages, races, body types and abilities (including wheelchair-bound dancers) for the performance, which is brought to life by Pinnacle’s Art in Public Places Program. Created and implemented by Louis Wolfson III, the program works with up-and-coming and established artists alike to provide high-quality public art to brighten the community. Pinnacle most recently commissioned artist Kyle Holbrook to design a mural depicting historic key leaders in Liberty City and artist Rey Jaffet to create Miami’s tallest mural near the airport. Pinnacle launched temporary public art on The Underline with six local artists who unveiled artfully-designed MetroRail columns in Brickell in November 2018.
