Local officials unveil artistic timepiece at Borinquen Health Care Center in Wynwood
On November 1, 2011, Vice Chairwoman Audrey M. Edmonson celebrated a new art installation in Wynwood at the Borinquen Health Care Center (BHCC). At a special ceremony, local officials and BHCC staff unveiled Creos Aetas, a 20-foot timepiece on the western wall of the BHCC building, along I-95 East and the Julia Tuttle Causeway. Creos Aetas, which loosely translates to "creation of human life" from Latin, depicts 12 ceramic and clay sculptures of various faces positioned at every hour. These faces symbolize the chronological journey of life, and trials and tribulations of humanity.
The artwork was donated to BHCC by Bahamian-American artist Kourtney Eugene Brown, who spent six years working on the project.
"It was an honor for me to be part of this unveiling in my district, especially for an organization that has helped countless people in the community," said Vice Chairwoman Edmonson. "I am grateful to Kourtney Eugene Brown, a young, local artist for donating this work to Borinquen. This timepiece is sure to become an historic landmark in Miami-Dade County."
