Xavier Cortada is the Miami artist chosen to create public art for this building – the Joe Moretti building. His works portray the beauty of nature by showcasing three pollinators found in the hardwood hammock that originally covered the site: The dragonfly flies in six directions; the butterfly captures you with the beauty of its wings, and the bioluminencent click beetle emits light. These pollinators are the subject of the ceramic murals and installations on the grounds of the building.
