This dedication was made by Midtown and the Church to bring culture and the arts back into the community. As part of the Borland Center for Cultural Enrichment, which is located at Midtown, Reliance measures 63 feet from one end to the other and is 15 feet high. The sculpture symbolizes a gateway and bridge – connecting people within the community, as the arches “reach out” for each other.
Sculptor Terry Thommes was contracted to design, fabricate and install this monumental public work of art for the Borland Center for Community Enrichment in Midtown, an upscale mixed-use development. Approximately 47 acres, Borland Center / Midtown is located on the north side of PGA Blvd, West of I-95 and East of Florida Turnpike. Reliance will be located at the center point of the project along PBG Blvd.
About the Borland Center For Community Enrichment
The Borland Center is named in honor of golf course designer Bruce Borland, who died tragically in a 1999 plane accident along with professional golfer Payne Stewart. He was a loving and caring man of genuine character who dedicated his life to his family, to his God and to the community he so dearly loved. Along with the founding pastor of PBCC, Dr. Ray Underwood, Bruce Borland championed the vision of creating a community-gathering place where the church facilities could be shared with the surrounding community for cultural, arts and educational family programs and events.
