STREET CRED

If you think your parents were mad when they spotted that little triskele Celtic spiral tattooed on your backside, imagine what the public thinks of the milelong version that ropes and braids itself down Rosemary Ave., connecting the Convention Center to the soon-to-be-restored Sunset Lounge at 8th St., running right through CityPlace.

Whatever your view on tattoos, this one’s got real street cred. A solid $260,000 worth. Called by its authors ‘the world’s largest installation of street art,’ it’s designed by New York City-based artist Steed Taylor and funded by the WPB CRA, the City’s Art in Public Places, and CityPlace.

Three designs were integrated along the hypnotic, tri-color track: Florida native plants and flowers; a Celtic braid symbolizing connectedness; and a musical scale with notes representing the Thelonious Monk jazz standard “Round Midnight.” Just don’t let your parents see it.
