Art is an integral part of the fabric of a city. It helps to tell the story of a city, creates a unique sense of place, contributes to community vitality and stimulates new economic growth. In partnership with the City of Fort Lauderdale, Riverwalk unveils its Art in Public Places Program with the initial installation of four pieces along Riverwalk. The program supports art that is creative, well crafted and integrated into the physical, cultural and historical aspect of the community. The pieces in this initial installation includes Sailboats from Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale by local artist Pat Anderson, NOVA/MOA, Downtown Development Authority and a magnificent mosaic Sailfish from local artist, Nadine Egan Floyd.
Now you can be a part of this movement with a commemorative signature tile. Order by email or call (954) 468-1541, ext. 200.
The first four pieces of Art in Public Places are mounted to a 3β wide x 6β long x 4β6β tall concrete pedestal. The top 12β of each pedestal contains two rows of 6β tall x 12β wide porcelain tiles. Each of these limited addition tiles can be engraved with two lines of copy.
Funds raised from tile sales support Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale. Some of the other Riverwalk Fort Lauderdaleβs iconic contributions to the park include the Victorian Clock in the historic district, Riverwalk benches, colorful banners and the mosaic tile mural on the Andrews Avenue Bridge.
