Public Art in Sanborn Square, Boca Raton, FL









Public art in Sanborn Square in #beautifulfla #bocaraton #florida #fl #floridaexplored #lovefl #publicart Sanborn Square is renowned as a site that displays many pieces of public art temporarily though this #sculpture adorns the park permanently.

Bust of Maestro Mark S. Azzolina (Lt Col US Air Force, retired)
In the early 1950s, the site directly across from Boca Raton's Old Town Hall, formerly a bus station, sat empty. In 1953, owner of the land, Eleanor Sanborn, generously allowed the town's annual holiday celebrations to take place there. By 1955, she donated the land to the city in memory of her late husband, Boca Raton part time resident Dr. William E. Sanborn, a wealthy Detroit dentist. The small park became the city's town square, hosting numerous gatherings. As the Boca Raton Community Redevelopment Agency was established and began making improvements to the downtown district, local residents voted in 1983 to expand Sanborn Square, removing the portion of Boca Raton Road that bisected the park. Benefactors Charles and Dorothy Schmidt made this improvement possible through a generous donation of additional land just north of Boca Raton Road. In 1985, the community celebrated the dedication of the new Sanborn Square. Today, Sanborn Square remains the heart of Downtwon Boca. It is a green and shady oasis amidst all the activity of a vibrant and lively downtown district and is host to many events year round.

Another #beautifulfla morning in #bocaraton #fl The Boca Raton...



Another #beautifulfla morning in #bocaraton #fl The Boca Raton Town Hall is a Mediterranean Revival structure, originally built in 1927 as the city’s first town hall. The building’s architect was Addison Mizner and the name Mizner is featured prominently in this section of Boca Raton on park’s, streets and buildings. Mizner was primarily a resort architect and his Mediterranean Revival and Spanish Colonial Revival buildings definitely made a stamp on #southflorida where it continues to inspire building construction; in fact if people own a home desined and built by Mizner, the home will sell for a premium. Mizner Industries, still in existence today, was founded to supply the needed tiles for Mizner’s constructions. By the 1970s, Boca Raton had outgrown the building, but the city rededicated the building to be the city’s museum in 1975 and it continues in that role to this day having been placed on the #nrhp in 1980 (at Boca Raton, Florida)

Gecko Venting Boynton Beach, FL

One of the things I like about #beautifulfla are the #geckos they are everywhere in #southflorida and they come in many varieties as well. They are cold blooded and when they get too hot many will vent heat from a flap below their mouth. Here I finally captured a gecko venting. They tend to be skittish and will run away if you get too close. Got lucky here because as I was sitting the gecko came close and wasn't scared away by my camera.

The Golden Silk Spider, Nephila clavipes, hoping to catch a meal in #beautifulfla , is relatively common in #florida and throughout the Southeast, it is a relatively large spider but still harmless to people. It is an orb weaving spider with orange and brown coloration and hairy tufts on its legs. Hikers dislike inadvertently walking into their spider webs. #fl #boyntonbeach
