Giant Gators Attack Freedom Tower In Time for Art Basel
Warning: All those in the vicinity of the Freedom Tower should be advised of the pressing danger facing passersby as a hardy pack of giant alligators makes its way up the exterior of the building. Upon closer examination, however, one may note that the creatures in question are not possessed of the normal greenish hue, but are in fact bright red. Further investigations will have to be conducted, but at the moment the best guess of the authorities on the scene is that the aforementioned alligators are in fact a part of the Italian gallery Ca' d'Oro's Foreverglades art installation, which is allegedly being mounted on Miami's Freedom Tower in time for Art Basel.
Ca' d'Oro is known as a previous perpetrator, having brought giant pink snails to town on the occasion of Art Basel 2010, so there is a discernible pattern to these actions. Pedestrians should be further warned that the alligators are not alone; surrounding them on their path to the top of the Freedom Tower are blue frogs, bright green turtles, and orange rabbits. In fact, there's actually an eco-friendly element to the whole thing — the animals created by the Cracking Art Group and William Sweetlove are all Everglades natives, and the exhibition (which will be installed by November 30) will be accompanied by an indoors, Everglades-based show and panel discussions addressing the environmental concerns surround the ecosystem of the Everglades.
