Description

New York artist William King created an abstract image that is easily recognized. The large sculpture of stick-like figures is a stylized,  image of a family of six, and serves to remind us of the importance of families, human fragility and the need for humanity. They stand together on a concrete base, holding hands, facing the busy traffic of one of the major arteries in Broward County.

 

 

Artist Statement

"Image is designed to be completely legible and directly connected to community experience, with immediate visceral impact upon recognition of this."
