The Coral Gables City Commission approved a concept by local artist Jessy Nite, one of 36 responsive proposals competing for the public installation to create an inaugural artist designed temporary overhead installation for the City's Giralda Plaza. “Sun Stories” is a collection of thousands of colored letters that dance from above creating playful sayings about Coral Gables. As the sun passes through the day, the cast colors of the plexiglass letters become more saturated, focused, moving and dancing across the ground and above the people visiting. Nite has exhibited nationally and internationally, most notably in London, Zurich, Vienna and Bangkok.
