Art by Javier Marin, 2006
This 13-foot bronze sculpture of a women’s head was purchased by the Jacksonville International Airport from the J. Johnson Gallery and placed in the ‘flag pavilion’ area.
This new area (on the corner of Pecan Park Road and Yankee Clipper Drive, adjacent to the JAA Administration Building) features the sculpture set against curved black granite walls with a waterfall.
The artist, Javier Marin drew his inspiration from many different cultures—Mexican, Native American, and Asian.
This piece is representative of the Airport’s value of multi-culturalism and places the City on an international level for public art.
Additionally, to the JIA Arts Commission, Hoy es Hoy is the first piece by an international artist placed at the Airport and symbolizes the forward thinking and positive progress of our program.
