During this time of crisis, there are still some bright spots that can be found in our community.
Here is an incredible Art of Community project that has just wrapped up. The project turned the once barren entrances to the Hugh Taylor Birch State Park tunnel into colorful mosaics with vibrant seaside images.
It used to be difficult to find the entrances to the tunnel that runs underneath A1A just north of Sunrise Blvd. But now you can’t miss them! Just look for the beautiful sea turtles, crashing waves and waving sea oats sparkle in the sun and catch your eye.
A $50,000 Art of Community grant from the Elaine Krupnick Fund for the Arts, made it possible to create these inspiring mosaics. They add to the natural beauty of the area and entice people to use the tunnel, which was transformed into an “undersea attraction” during the first phase of this exciting project.
Watch below to see mosaic artist Todd Michael Hanna put the finishing touches on his beautiful artwork now on display at the entrances to the Hugh Taylor Birch State Park tunnel.
