The City of Coral Gables is celebrating the completion of the Downtown Miracle Mile and Giralda Streetscape Project with an exciting art project, Venice in the Gables.
Eight foot tall replicas of Venetian mooring posts (paline), resembling the picturesque canal posts for the gondolas of Venice, will grace the streets of downtown Coral Gables for a temporary exhibit inviting visitors and residents to interact with the new streetscape. The public exhibition starts on Friday, May 18th, 2018.
Coral Gables Artist Holly A Jones was inspired to produce "Moon over Miami" which is a city beautiful garden scene under a bright Miami moon. Holly's Paline is sponsored by Weissel Properties. Bright metallic colors along with glow in the dark paint creates an exciting evening sensation. A glossy commercial-grade final coat of clear makes the garden scene come to life. For a time, Holly lived next to the Venetian pool, a historic city landmark that features the authentic venetian palines.
