M

1996, Miami, Florida

The sculpture was installed in 1996 in celebration of the first 100 years of Miami.

The biggest M in the world, located in downtown Miami, is a Model of Multiple Meanings, from Miami, Motion, and Monument to Memory, Mystery and Magic, and as a landmark in a land of immigrants, it may also celebrate all Mothers left behind. Like Alice in Wonderland, who changes scale to transform through dreams her perception of reality, the M provides physical evidence of the fantastic as part of everyday life.
