Xavier Cortada, "Flor pa Cayo Hueso," sublimation dye on fabric, 72" x 36" (2014)

In creating "Flor pa Cayo Hueso," Cortada used this 2013 wildflower painting "Flor."  The work commemorates the 500th anniversary of Juan Ponce de Leon landing in our peninsula and naming it "La Florida" --from "flor," the Spanish word for flower.  More at www.flor500.com
