City of Pompano Beach

Overview

“Current” welcomes visitors to the Cultural Arts Center adjacent to City Hall in the revitalized downtown Pompano. The sculpture is an abstracted reference to the infinite and dynamic flow of community, solidarity and creativity that the Cultural Arts Center provides its citizens and visitors, which they in turn feed back to the city to create a reciprocal sense of connection and place. The satin finish of the stainless steel softly reflects the surrounding environment while the rich patina of the bronze evokes the area’s leaves, grasses, ocean and skies.

Goals

The City of Pompano Beach issued a call to artists for an exterior work of art to welcome visitors and citizens to the Cultural Arts Center and nearby City Center. "Current" was unanimously selected for its organic movement and symbolic representation of the spirit of the community.
