A temporary, international public art initiative of Compassionate St. Augustine, Obelisk Art 450 (OA450) hopes to pay tribute to the 450th anniversary of the nation’s oldest city in 2015 and promote a legacy of compassion.
25 renowned artists who exhibit regionally, nationally and internationally have been selected to create an artwork on the blank canvas of an 8.5-foot tall obelisk replica of the Monumento a la Constitución on the St. Augustine’s Plaza de la Constitucion. Each artist had their own obelisk to work with that will be placed on a historic site within downtown St. Augustine.
