And don’t miss the highlight of the evening, a special art commemoration by Mayor Keith A. James, celebrating “Genius Loci,” a captivating public art sculpture at Heart and Soul Park by Nekisha Durrett. This artwork, inspired by the rich history of West Palm Beach, invites us to reflect on the voices of the Historic Northwest.
🎨 “Genius Loci is a public artwork that was inspired by the legacy of Sunset Lounge, the ‘Cotton Club of the South,’ and the history of the Styx, a community in West Palm that built Palm Beach island and was mysteriously burned to the ground in 1910. An oversized RCA-inspired gramophone of copper sheeting supported by charred wood, Genius Loci invites park visitors to ponder what voices of Palm Beach Black history would be amplified from the earth.” – Nekisha Durrett
