Field of Stories: Coleman Park

Field of Stories: Coleman Park

Field of Stories: Coleman Park West Palm Beach, Florida This project is a public art commission for the grounds of a new community center. On a site where the Negro American Baseball League played, the work recalls the site history by plaiting the field with stone-dust pathways, reminiscent of the baselines and mow patterns of a baseball field. Scattered across the field are nine giant baseball sculptures made of tinted cast concrete and set into the ground at different levels. The baseballs become seats, backrests, stages and tables. Each year the neighborhood honors a community hero by inscribing his or her name onto one of the baseballs. The “stories” are those that will over time be “written” on the field.
