The Ship of Tolerance on Watson Island

Russian-born, U.S.-based conceptual duo Ilya and Emilia Kabakov's acclaimed sculpture, previously exhibited in 2005 in Siwa, Egypt, and at the 2007 Venice Biennale, docks in Miami Beach courtesy of the Miami Children's Museum. It's fashioned after an ancient Egyptian vessel, and local schoolchildren have been invited to illustrate the fabric panels of its sail.
