A collaboration between Blane de St. Croix and Ellen Harvey.

Inspired by the mangrove glades of the Everglades and Miami area, Sky Grove inserts marble mangrove trees and herons and their reflections into the terrazzo floor of the Jackson West Hospital entrance.  The groves are mirrored so that as visitors cross the hospital threshold, they briefly step across the boundary between the sky and the water.

Commissioned by Miami-Dade Art in Public Places.
