Pilar Corrias Gallery is delighted to announce the opening of Tobias Rehberger’s art commission at South Pointe Park in Miami.
“For my art proposal within South Pointe Park I would like to give this very special gateway to the City of Miami Beach a symbol that not only marks the area and greets all the visitors that pass through Government cut every day by boat but also brings together some of the key attributes the city stands for: a vital zest for life; art and design; a sculpture, which is designed as a modern playful interpretation of a beacon; including the moving lights at the top. However, the function of the light is not to guide the ships but to greet all the visitors to the City with cheerful, multi colored lighting that underlines the lively spirit of Miami Beach.”
The lighthouse has a total height of 55 feet and is an iconic; gateway; colorful and accessible art project that will continue to further the City’s Vision Statement as “a Cultural Capital and an International Center for Innovation in Culture.”
