Port Everglades Installs Artwork in Cruise Terminal 18
Port Everglades has installed a work of public art in Cruise Terminal 18, the homeport terminal of Royal Caribbean International’s Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas. The work by Larry Kirkland is called “Cruising School,” and features a school of shimmering fish suspended among crystal bubbles and golden waves. The artwork is comprised of 300 painted aluminum fish suspended from a swirling oval bracket attached to the ceiling. Rotating on ambient air currents, the fish activate the space with changing reflections and cast shadows onto adjacent walls.
“Every week, an average of 12,000 guests pass through this lobby area of the cruise terminal on their way to cruise aboard the largest cruise ships in the world,” said Port Everglades Chief Executive and Port Director Steven Cernak. “They will get a mini ‘wow’ in the lobby before the big ‘wow’ aboard the ship.”
