Memorial for Lindsay Lewis, daughter of Justice Fred & Judy Lewis for Miami Children's Hospital. It's at the emergency entrance to the hospital. Lindsay had been treated at the hospital over her 27 years of life. 30 Inches L x 14 Inches W x 47 Inches H. Bronze.
Previous sculpture at this site show children playing in the Fountain, but this is the first to show a child in a wheel chair. She is given the sign language symbol for (I love you) to the children playing.
The artist worked with the Lewis family and actually allowed them to be part of the sculpting process at the artist's studio. The artist coordinated with the Hospital Staff for the placement of the memorial at the site. The artist was allowed to use his 9 year old granddaughter, Kyla, as the body model for the sculpture. The resemblance of Kyla and Lindsay was remarkable.

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.
