BB&T Sponsors Dania Sierra to create a SmARTy Dogs for SmART Schools
SmARTy Dogs for Smart Schools Campaign
Welcome to SmARTy Dogs for SmART Schools - a public art campaign produced by Prince Media Development. SmARTy Dogs is public art in public places at its best. Large fiberglass dogs painted by recognized South Florida artists have been placed throughout Pinecrest in parks, schools and along the US 1 business corridor. The dogs will be auctioned off on March 28, 2012 at Pinecrest Gardens and 100% of the proceeds will go to the Smart Schools campaign to support technology at the Village's public schools.
JFK Public Library Hialeah, Florida / Public Art Project
Thanks to the vision of Mayor Carlos Hernandez in bringing Art & Cultural to the city of Hialeah, I was chosen amongst the lucky ones to paint a mural at the JFK Public Library in Hialeah Florida.
My mural “Sunday Afternoon”, depicts a couple on a Sunday afternoon relaxing reading a book. The mural is executed in a modern cubist style with bold areas of bright vivid colors, making it appealing to the viewers visually from a distance and up close. Since both pieces frame the entrance to the library, composition and color palette were important in the designing process. 21 other murals grace the outer walls of this historical public library.
Hoping the community, art collectors, tourist and kids will enjoy them and learn about the importance of literature through these pieces. I personally know all the artist's poured their hearts into the project making this project a visual outdoor museum / public library. I encourage all of you to go by and see them, they are truly beautiful.There will be a grand opening of the entire updated library this spring I will keep you posted.
Located Downtown along Biscayne Boulevard on three of the medians in front of Bayfront Park between SE 2nd Street and NE 1st Street, by the Bayfront Park Metro mover station.
Designed as an ‘urban intervention,’ the Biscayne Green demonstration project will repurpose a segment of Downtown’s signature thoroughfare, transforming surface parking lots into public open space with the hopes to engage the Downtown community and invite them to experience the Boulevard in a different way, bringing activity to city streets at a time when pedestrian-friendly solutions are so desperately needed.
?Spanning 20 days and featuring various events weekly, Biscayne Green will have something for everyone. But while it’s designed to entertain, it will also help reveal what can be achieved when people get out of their cars and onto the street.
A whimsical and fun public art initiative produced by the Town of Surfside. Decorated fiberglass turtles grace public right of ways with colorful and decorative designs by local artists. To learn more about Tale of the Surside Turtles pleaseclick here
