About the Artwork

Commissioned by the City of Orlando, the colorful Orange Avenue Arch is a gateway to the Wall Street Plaza leading up to the Orange County Regional History Center. A different artist designed each side of the arch; then the two artists collaborated on the fabrication. The side pictured intermingles two natural elements that have played a prominent role in so much of Florida’s identity, economy, and history: waves representing the ocean and lakes and the citrus trees. At the center of the arch is a large blue clock.
