Coral Springs Museum of Art Announces Forever Broward Project
Public Art Installed on December 13, 2018
In 2017, the Coral Springs Museum of Art received a grant from the Community Foundation of Broward to support the Forever Broward project. The Forever Broward project, promoting the importance and splendor of life in West Broward, has consisted of a series of lectures and community organized programs and has culminated with the installation of two 20-foot bird sculptures on December 13, 2018.
Constructed by the Myth Makers, Donna Dodson and Andy Moerlein, the bird sculptures are made entirely from bamboo and recycled materials. One sculpture named, Persistence, is displayed at the Sawgrass Nature Center (3000 Sportsplex Dr., Coral Springs, FL 33065), and the other named, Perseverance, is installed at the Atlantic Trail Head.
“The Forever Broward Project will highlight the pride and importance of the community in West Broward using the Everglades as the project’s muse to bring all county residence together,” said Julia Andrews, Executive Director and Chief Curator of the Coral Springs Museum of Art. “With the generous support from the Community Foundation of Broward, we want to raise awareness about life in West Broward and its incredible community, with the most notable western landscape of the Everglades which is what makes living out West distinctly different than any other area in Broward.”
The two temporary sculptures are expected to be on display for the next three to five years. The public were invited to attend one or both of the installations on December 13, 2018. The installation of Persistence at the Sawgrass Nature Center and the installation of Perseverance at the Atlantic Trail Head took place between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
