Signed in pencil by Christo. On May 7, 1983, the installation of Surrounded Islands was completed in Biscayne Bay, Florida. Eleven islands were surrounded with 6.5 million square feet of floating pink woven polypropylene fabric covering the surface of the water and extending out 200 feet from each island into the bay. There were 79 different patterns sewn in the material to match the contour of the islands. During the installation, the crew removed an estimated 40 tons of garbage from the islands and the surrounding area. This collage is an homage to that project, not only the beauty of its completion but also the effort and time put forth by so many to see it through .
