Colombian Artist’s Public Exhibit, Brought to the Fort Myers Historic Downtown by Developers of ALLURE LUXURY CONDOMINIUMS, Extends to RSW
FORT MYERS, Fla. (February 4, 2016) — A sculpture from internationally-acclaimed artist Edgardo Carmona, who recently made his first North American public art debut with the unveiling of his 23-piece “Allure Your Senses” exhibit in the historic Fort Myers River District, is now on display at Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW). The piece titled “Dúo Sinfónico” is an iron sculpture which creates a moment where a flutist with his beautiful tunes, attracts a chirping bird to sing with him, creating a stunning symbiosis between human and wildlife. It will be on display through sometime in March. The sculpture, located in the East Atrium departure level, near door number two, is part of the Art In Flight partnership between Lee County Alliance for the Arts and Lee County Port Authority, which brings art to public spaces at Southwest Florida International Airport.
