New York artist Alice Aycock was chosen by the Coral Gables City Commission on Nov. 18, 2014 to create the first major public art monuments since Coral Gables founder George Merrick’s day. The two sculptures depicting passion flowers, which celebrate Coral Gables’ roots as a Garden City, will be installed on Segovia Traffic Circles at Coral Way and Biltmore Way. Aycock is a nationally renowned public artist whose sculptures are on display at major museums and public spaces across the country, including a recent installation on Park Avenue. Aycock’s proposal calls for a large sculpture with fountain features at the intersection of Biltmore Way and a smaller sculpture at Coral Way. Aycock was chosen after a panel of arts experts reviewed 181 submissions from around the world.
