Public Art on South Dixie

Although South Dixie is the heart of the Art and Antiques district, very little public art faces Dixie.  Here is what I found last week.

Idea: Group Paintings from WPB History

Since the Renaissance, large paintings have captured the likeness and psychology families, friends or business associates.  Several images from the history of West Palm Beach are consistently used to represent the people of this place.  Here are some historic pictures and work by famous artists that have interpreted similar groups.

What if the Art in Public Places commissioned large painting by contemporary artists to interpret our past?

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.
