"The piece resembles an infinity symbol and shines with the rainbow colors of the Embracing Our Differences logo, a local non-profit best known for its annual outdoor art exhibit and educational initiatives celebrating diversity." The stainless steel, 20-foot-tall, the site-specific sculpture is located in the center of the roundabout in downtown Sarasota. The piece also incorporates LED lighting and acrylic panels.
The artist, Blessing Hancock, created the concept and design and she passed her aspirations along to Gizmo Art Production who fabricated and installed the sculpture. Working with artists in this capacity and through the process has become a usual day for Gizmo.
Gizmo Art Production has been building and installing Blessing Hancock's pieces all over the country.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
