la dolce vita
8 ft x 10 inches | mixed media + metallic acrylic paint on fiberglass replica of Venetian mooring post
Completed as part of the Coral Gables Public Art project, Venice in the Gables.
"La Dolce Vita" post was sponsored and purchased by Mercedes-Benz of Coral Gables.
The City of Coral Gables celebrated the completion of the Downtown Miracle Mile and Giralda Streetscape Project with an exciting art project, Venice in the Gables .
Eight foot tall replicas of Venetian mooring posts (paline), resembling the picturesque canal posts for the gondolas of Venice, graced the streets of downtown Coral Gables for a temporary exhibit inviting visitors and residents to interact with the new streetscape.
Posts were designed and painted by local artists, supported by sponsors, and made available at the end of the exhibit for purchase at a charitable auction. This community art project was just one of the many ways we encourage the public to explore our vibrant downtown area and contribute to the economic vitality of this pedestrian-friendly oasis.
