The sculpture 18' tall was made by José R. Calderón. The pathway in the court plaza has 30 foot-square ceramic pavers in the shape of world historical motifs. Within these are are some 80 silkscreened photos of West Palm Beach history and culture. These were made by Roberto L. Delgado.
We are professional fine artists specializing in mixed-media public art design, fabrication, and installation. All art fabrication is done in-house, at our respective studios. Our interest in public art is to expand the combination of diverse techniques in hand-brushed acrylic, fired ceramic tile, carved stone sculpture, in ways that complement the environment and show the culture and history of the community and natural environment. The importance was to present a sculpture that used the sun of the thickness of the travertine. In the pavers, it was simply to show world motifs (Qing Dynasty bat; Toltec butterflies) and images of West Palm Beach history.
With the sculpture, the normal interplay between the artist and the general contractor and local & federal codes. With the pavers, back and forth to reach consensus on historical photos. West Palm Beach was the traditional slave area of Palm Beach, and was an important part of the Civil Rights Movement.

[ 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.
