“Rise” installation at JFK Public Library

May 21, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Hialeah Mayor Carlos Hernandez will dedicate the installation of Cortada’s “Rise” art work at the city’s main public library. Hialeah is Florida’s fourth largest city.

“Rise” honors the individuals who come together to move Hialeah forward.The work depicts unique blocks arranged in the form of steps. Each block represents an individual’s contribution to a community. Each set of four steps (coming in from the four directions, the four corners, the four winds, the four coordinates) combines to create a moving wheel.

As a community, each individual moves in step with the whole.  Upward.  Forward.

In unison, the moving steps act like a gear.  They support one another and move through time.  The aggregate action amplifies the singular impact of one.  Integrating all actions it into the one motion, they rise.

(The steps are created using the formula generated by the Catalan numbers.)
