A new temporary public art installation is coming to Giralda Plaza - colorful and eclectic. The Coral Gables City Commission approved a concept by local artist Jessy Nite, one of 36 responsive proposals competing for the public installation. “Sun Stories” is a collection of thousands of colored letters that will dance from above creating playful sayings about Coral Gables. As the sun passes through the day, the shadows of the plexiglass letters will become magnified and stretched, 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.
The City of Coral Gables accepted concept proposals from professional working artists for consideration to create an inaugural artist designed temporary overhead installation for the City’s Giralda Plaza.
