Diatom – Buy a signed, numbered, limited-edition print (edition of 5) of one of the digital works Xavier Cortada created for his 2015 public art commission at the Florida Turnpike Turkey Lake plaza near Orlando, Florida.  See https://hibiscusgallery.com/artwork/diatoms/

One of the 5 editions of this limited print is in the permanent collection of the State of Florida Department of State.

The artist print showcases diatoms, sun-loving, single-cell organisms that harness the power of the sun to convert carbon dioxide into life-giving oxygen. Cortada believes that we should all harness the same power to create more clean energy in the Sunshine State.

In 2015, Cortada created three permanent public art installations in three Florida Turnpike plazas, making them cultural destinations in and of themselves.  Each focused on a different aspect of the sunshine state’s natural beauty:  Endangered Animals  (Ft. Drum Plaza),  Diatoms  (Turkey Lake Plaza), and Wildflowers (West Palm Beach Plaza).

All proceeds from the sale of this print will benefit Cortada Projects at Pinecrest Gardens.  To learn more visit www.cortadaprojects.org
