Reaching 40-feet into the sky, Cavalcade is the tallest public art in the Palm Beaches. This colorful iconic 8.5 ton sculpture is a permanent Albert Paley sculpture commissioned by the developers of 500 Ocean. Paley, one of the world's prominent metal sculptors created this sculpture to provide a dramatic silhouette when accented against the sky. The spire-like shapes projecting upward engage the quality and play of sunlight and provide dramatic contrast. The vertical elements are Alberts interpretation of palm fronds. Although the sculpture is not kinetic, the interlaced folded metal shapes indicate movement as if they are being articulated by the air from the sea. As the sun traverses, the play of light and shade dramatically increases the sculptures dynamism.
