“Wisdom” , a 25 ft bronze owl sculpture overlooks Hemming Plaza from its perch on the corner of the Jacksonville Downtown Library. Created by Washington-based artist Larry Kirkland and installed in March 2005, the sculpture is part of Jacksonville’s Art in Public Places.
As many times as I have been to St. Augustine , last weekend was the first time I noticed this historic marker, located just outside the Visitor Center.
Here is the inscription:
Old Spanish Trail Zero Milestone
St. Augustine, Fla to San Diego, Calif
Erected and dedicated by The Exchange Club of St. Augustine A.D. 1928
Sculpture on display in Hemming Park at One Spark Jacksonville
For 5 days, April 17-21, One Spark lights up downtown Jacksonville. One Spark gives creators, artists , entrepreneurs and innovators a venue to showcase their work. And there’s $250,000 to be distributed based on public vote.
You’ll enjoy speakers, food, music and entertainment. So come downtown and join the festivities!
