Art in Public Places

In 2006, McMow Art Glass was awarded the Art In Public Places project for Palm Beach County’s West County Courthouse in Belle Glade, Florida.  With the assistance of the western community, McMow’s “Glade Scape” depicted native animals and vegetation on 4 mosaic columns.  Native American symbols were depicted by adhering glass mosaics to custom designed and poured concrete benches.  The Belle Glade Boys & Girls Club helped create a mosaic stepping stone path leading from the courthouse and sidewalks to the garden bench area.

In 2009, McMow Art Glass had the honor of being selected as an artist to create an onsite dimensional etching at the Key West International Airport for the Florida Keys Cultural Council.  The etching depicted a scene of Key West that captured a local light house as well as the first biplane to take off at the Key West Airport.  The team of 4 spent 3 nights at the airport, as they were only allowed to work while the airport was closed, from 7pm-5am.  The etching can be seen on the TSA’s glass security wall when passengers are both leaving and arriving from the airport.

In 2011, McMow Art Glass was selected as the sole artist for The Florida Art In State Buildings Program at the Polk County Health Department Clinic and WIC Clinic.  McMow transformed a typical clinic lobby into a “Canopy of Comfort” by bringing in color and depicting stylized tree tops in which patients sit under.  In the WIC office, they wanted to keep the theme feminine, but add color.  They created beautiful stylized flowers that have hand painted detail and ribbons weaving through out them.

In 2013, McMow was awarded the Mullins Park Arts In Public Places Project in Coral Springs. This series of 3 mosaic panels were designed with bright colors and incorporate the sports that are played at the complex. Contemporary and eye catching the design and construction team at McMow created one of our most stunning installations to date.
