Beacons
Public Art
Miami FL
2012


The illumination of the Marlins Ballpark super-columns uses the simple concept of revealing and concealing through the use of light. Standing nearly 200 feet in height, each of the four columns fades up and down as if the light is a breath, appearing and disappearing in subtly varying rhythms. The scale of the columns and the oscillating light allow this effect to be visible at great distances through the city, acting as a beacon drawing fans to the ballpark and announcing events occurring within.

This artwork is part of the collection of Miami-Dade County Art in Public Places program, made possible with the support of the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners.
