Pelican Path

Xavier Cortada, Pelican Path,” hand-made and hand-painted ceramic tile and aluminum cut-out, 4 feet by 40 feet , 2014

Pelican Path Xavier Cortada was commissioned by the Public Art and Design Program of the Broward County Public Art and Design Program to create Pelican Path for Port Everglades Terminal 4. When a pelican takes flight, it skips across the surface of the water gently tapping the waves. It leaves a trail of ripples and eddies behind, a path that quickly disappears as the pelican flies across the waves and over the sea. Likewise, cruise passengers about to embark on their vacations will soon be taking off across the water themselves with their ship leaving disappearing ripples in its wake.
