After conducting extensive research, the CRA requested proposals for an interactive art/sign that would serve as a marketing and branding tool for Downtown. After reviewing 35 proposals, the “Downtown Interactive Icon” by Greensboro, NC sculptor Jim Gallucci was selected. The sculpture was inspired by the 2-D logo used by the City of Coral Springs and it incorporates the Downtown/CRA logo. Fabricated out of aluminum it stands 12’ tall by 12’ wide and is 4’ deep. Designed to be transported to different sites, the sculpture can be lifted off the site and loaded on a flatbed trailer for re-installation. Inside the sculpture are LED lights that are controlled by an astronomical clock. This switches the lights on and off and changes the color of the words “Everything Under the Sun.” The arching shape encourages visitors to walk under the arch to take photos. The icon was installed in the grand lawn next to the new City Hall building.
We invite you to come take a picture “Under the Sun”!
