Carlos Betancourt's The Pelican Passage is an enormous mixed media object inspired by pinatas, cakes and altars that invites participation around its imposing frame. It is a testament to Betancourt's Puerto Rican, Cuban and trans-cultural experiences and gesture towards the power of inclusion, memory and pleasures of belonging. 'Worshipers' will perform a choreography along the artwork's passage down Collins Avenue. The float-like sculpture is topped by a gold leafed pelican— a mythical figure loaded with — symbolism.
