A sculpture named Influx, reminiscent of a curling blue and green ocean
wave by Cecilia Lueza will be placed in front of city hall on a base that is
now under construction. Every two years a new sculpture will be placed
there. The wave sculpture travels from city to city.
Road, Townplace Suites by Marriott in Tradition for an 8-foot
aluminum sculpture, and Village on the Commons at Rosser
Road and Aledo Lane.
Healthcare Center on the east side of Village Parkway at
Tradition won approval last September for two bird sculptures
by Geoffrey C. Smith — a 7-foot anhinga and a life-size
sandhill crane in bronze.
Verano South hopes to have five agave sculptures by Mark
Fuller ready by spring. They range from 6 to 12 feet tall and
will be set in a carefully landscaped area that includes live
agave plants visible from Crosstown Parkway. They will be
made of an aluminum and mirror-polished stainless steel
exterior with lighting within and underneath. The proposal
was praised by Vice Mayor Shannon Martin in November as
“the best I’ve ever seen. It says Port St. Lucie to me more than
any other piece I’ve ever seen.”
The long-lived agave plant, sometimes called a century
plant, is native to hot, dry regions and suitable for landscapes
in Port St. Lucie. It may be familiar to some as a sweetener for
foods and for the production of tequila and mezcal.
Just recently the public art program was given a boost
when the city was awarded a $10,000 grant from the National
Endowment for the Arts to create a mural at Minsky Gym
depicting the city’s vision as a city for all people. A workshop
with selected muralists and residents will help determine
what the mural will look like.
