Our Downtown office was included in the Art in Public Places project. This program was established in 1979 by the Florida Legislature. Public Art refers to artwork that is located in the public’s space such as in the lobby or outside a state, local government or private facility. Public art is either purchased for the space or an artist will be commissioned to create a specific piece of artwork to reflect distinctive qualities of the space, its function, natural surroundings, architectural environment, or neighborhood identity. Beth Ravitz is the artist selected by the committee to create our display and we provided her with recycled license plates to create our project. It took her months to complete and an entire day to install it.
We think she knocked it out of the park!! It’s even prettier in person.
