Public Art at Fire Rescue Station #3 in Northwood

Visiting Fire Rescue Station #3 in Northwood for a discussion of the Parks Master Plan, we discovered the public art:   architectural establishments of the station.  Mosaics, tile murals and relief carving are types of public art that have been a part of Mediterranean cultures for thousands of years.  These great traditions from the Babylonians to the Romans to the Spanish Moors influenced the architecture in Palm Beach County since the early 20th century.

On the ground before the community room, a latin phrase is written that means:  FROM MANY PEOPLES STRENGTH.

  1. Jeff Halverson told me that he had created the latin-phrased mosaic in front of the door in the community room, so he may be the best source of information on the other works, as well. He can be reached at jeh272@att.net.
