Winter Installation by Reyna Noriega
Each year, Brookfield Place features a winter themed installation on its glass exterior. This year, artist Reyna Noriega has designed a vibrant and unique vinyl on display on Brookfield Place’s façade on Vesey Street, the Waterfront Plaza and West Street. There is also a complimentary design featured in the Winter Garden.
About Reyna Noriega
Reyna Noriega is a Miami-based Afro-Latina visual artist, author, and educator who works across a variety of mediums, from graphic design, to painting, digital illustration, and photography. Through simplified shapes and forms in bold and vibrant shades, she portrays figures of people of color, architectural spaces, and landscapes. She helps women to create inclusive, forward-thinking businesses and brands and combines her visual art with writing. In 2019, she notably published a collection of poems entitled In Bloom.
Her multidisciplinary practice is devoted to highlighting and uplifting women and to helping them heal and find happiness. With layers of paint and pixels, Noriega offers a window into her life and those of all women, as she tells stories inspired by her culture and experiences, in which women can recognize themselves, feel represented, and empowered.
Noriega received her BA in Psychology from Florida International University, with minors in Art and English. Over the course of the next four years, she taught graphic design and visual arts in a public high school and developed her passion and ability to teach, motivate, and inspire. She further refined her skill set as a creative director, public and motivational speaker, before becoming a full-time illustrator in 2018.
