Location: Segovia Street & Biltmore Way / Segovia Street & Coral Way
Sculpture Fabrication: EES Design LLC, Fort Lauderdale

Two sculptures — celebrating Coral Gables’ roots as a Garden City — are installed on the Segovia Traffic Circles at Coral Way and Biltmore Way. The sculptures are taken in part from the passiflora (passion flower) species. Scaled to a gigantic size, the work also references transitions and communication through satellites, antennas, and mechanical robotic floral objects.

They were designed by renowned New York artist Alice Aycock, who was chosen by the City Commission to create the first major public artworks since Coral Gables founder George Merrick's day. Aycock was chosen after a panel of arts experts reviewed 181 submissions from around the world.

Funding and support from: Neighborhood Renaissance Program, National Endowment for the Arts, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden
