On view now: Allison Janae Hamilton’s The peo-ple cried mer-cy in the storm is made up of a towering stack of tambourines on an island in one of Storm King’s ponds. The installation was inspired by the Great Miami Hurricane of 1926, and accounts of the 1928 Okeechobee Hurricane, referenced in Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God. Both storms devastated the state of Florida, the latter killing thousands of black migrant workers who were buried in unmarked mass graves.
