A dedication ceremony will be held on Wednesday, November 20 at 4:30 p.m. for the installation of ColorPlay, the new sculpture celebrating the City’s 50th anniversary. The piece will be located at the City’s east entryway on Atlantic Blvd.
ColorPlay was inspired by Coral Spring’s historically strong family foundation. The sculpture’s meaning and energy reflects the joy and vitality of people coming together to create, work and play in their community. ColorPlay’s cotemporary, sleek, stainless steel figures evoke the timeless traditions of people joined together across generations in work and play. The multicolored glass disks symbolize the City’s diversity and look forward to the array of life’s challenges as opportunities for growth.
“My goal is to unite people with one another, the landscape and architecture in which we live, work and play, by creating works that energize and spark feelings of connection and pride,” artist Stephen Canneto said.
The Public Art Program was established in 2003 and is funded by impact fees from private developers. The Public Art Committee, a committee comprised of residents appointed by the City Commission, oversees the public art fund and approves of the artists/artworks selected for the City’s program. City staff implements the program on behalf of the Public Art Committee. Currently, the City has purchased 13 pieces of artwork which are displayed throughout the community.
