For The City of Port St. Lucie’s inaugural public art mural we have designed and created a preliminary painting depicting the city’s vibrant life in three sections.
1) The first section has a large pineapple as a welcome symbol for the beginning of the mural. The pineapple represents St. Lucie County’s historical pineapple plantations. The pineapple is placed in a backdrop of the arbor near the entrance to The Port St. Lucie Botanical Gardens where a family on bicycles is arriving.
2) As “A City for All Ages” theme continues, the second section represents the bridge on Port St. Lucie Blvd “The Twin Bridge” that is driven daily by most Port St. Lucie residents. In the St. Lucie River centralized to the mural and under the bridge, a recreational boat and two kayakers are painted. There is also a mother and baby manatee just below the water’s surface and a heron in the mangroves.
3) The third section of the mural shows the 18th tee of “The Saints” golf course of Port St. Lucie and a golfer giving it his best shot out of the sand towards the final flag. We end the mural with a bright orange multi-toned hibiscus flower.
Wish Us Luck!
The City of Port St. Lucie, A City for All Ages, has much to offer in terms of natural beauty, outdoor recreation and quality of life. The inaugural public art mural is the first project in the PAAB Master Plan. The artwork should be evocative of our natural resources and green spaces with a special emphasis on the St. Lucie River. - per their Request For Proposal
