Ice Pops - Craig Berube-Gray has recently been installed in Rachel Richardson Park on the corner of 21st Court & Andrews Avenue. Go see it in person.
Jade Coin - Artist Unknown is almost luminous. The form is inspired by ancient cast Chinese coins and is a striking contrast to the airiness of the nearby foliage . See it at 2015 NE 7th Avenue next to the Butterfly Garden @ M. E. DePalma Park.
Art et Industrie II, III and IV by Glen Mayo were hiding in plain sight. These sculptures give new life to industrial scrap and shift the focus from what was removed to what is left behind. They are located at 909 NE 23rd Drive & 67 NE 25th Street.
Ad Hoc - Glen Mayo is both linear and freeform. The shape implies a gate or barred window — reimagined with the imperfect symmetry of nature. See it at 505 NE 23rd Street.

The concept for the In Plain Sight Wilton Manors art guide originated with Hunter Stephens, a Wilton Manors resident with a strong interest in art and design and promoting public art in his adopted home town. Hunter surveyed the entire City of Wilton Manors, mapping, cataloging and photographing significant artistic points of interest throughout the City. He sought the advice of countless longtime residents, local business owners, local arts and historic organizations, and City officials to help refine ideas and give shape to the In Plain Sight art guide.
