WYNWOOD — An art work celebrating life now decorates a wall at the Borinquen Health Care Center in Miami’s Wynwood community.
The 20-foot timepiece work titled Creos Aetas, which, loosely translated from Latin, means “Creation of Human Life,” was unveiled Nov. 1.
Bahamian-American artist Kourtney Eugene Brown spent six years working on the project which includes 12 ceramic and clay sculptures of various faces positioned at every hour. The faces symbolize the chronological journey of life, and trials and tribulations of humanity.
Brown donated his work to the center at 3601 Federal Hwy. where it is installed on the western wall, along I-95 East and the Julia Tuttle Causeway.
Audrey M. Edmonson, vice-chairwoman the Miami-Dade County Commission, was among those at the unveiling ceremony.
“It was an honor for me to be part of this unveiling in my district, especially for an organization that has helped countless people in the community,” Edmonson said.
“I am grateful to Kourtney Eugene Brown, a young, local artist for donating this work to Borinquen. This timepiece is sure to become an historic landmark in Miami-Dade County,” she said.
