There’s a beautiful new addition to Jacksonville’s riverfront, and we’re proud to have played a part in its creation.
The City of Jacksonville, the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville, and Art in Public Places have combined with artist Kate Garcia Rouh to install a tile and glass mural along the Jacksonville Southbank Riverwalk.
The piece – “Mirrored River” – depicts the path of the St. John’s River that flows past downtown Jacksonville.
We donated the mirrored glass used in the project.
“It was scrap that we would have normally recycled,” said Lee & Cates Operations Manager Thomas Lee, “so we’re really glad to see it used in such a positive way.”
“Glass is very versatile, and whether we’re doing the work or other artists or craftsmen are, we’re happy that people get to see and enjoy the results.”
