Wilton Manors Main Street’s
Children’s Art Project is to
create a mini plaza within the southern tip of Jaycee Park.
Three Island Plaza was envisioned to display the past present
and future of Wilton Manors in three mosaic tiles sculptures.
The design for the Postcard sculpture is to replicate the
original 1925 poster used to sell land in Wilton Manors in a
large scale format on a concrete block wall, seven feet long by
five and a half feet high. The concrete block will be covered with
the tile mosaic.
The Benches are designed to be canvases for mosaics depicting
animals, plants and sea life of the area representing our
present. The lower riser or leg of the benches will be layered
with the tile works.
The “Clasped Hands” is a retaining
wall around an oasis of palm trees and native plantings. The
front face is the canvas for tile mosaics of natural colored
stones. This element of the design is the future, how we work
together to build a community.
The final element of the
plaza will be a brick pavers floor approx. 410 sq ft. connecting
the three sculptures. The center square of the floor will be
patterned with the words of our sponsors. Lighting will be added
to up light the Postcard and Clasped Hands mosaic.
