‘Best Kept Secret’ is comprised of laser cut stainless steel, copper, colored acrylic panels and acrylic painted aluminum using the highest quality materials. All aspects of that project including installation were performed by myself except for laser cutting that required a large metal shop in Tampa. The inspiration for the project, came partially from finding an obscure historical image of a 'colored dance pavilion' from the days of segregation. I created a stylized version of that image as part of the sculpture to help celebrate how far Gulfport had come from a ‘sunset community’ to be the extremely open and inclusive community it is today. My sculpture also intended to help Gulfport market itself as a creative and inclusive community.
