#FlashbackFriday: Economic Council Circa 2003

In 2003, Colonial Bank commissioned local artist Bruce Helander to assemble an artwork for the Economic Council of Palm Beach County. “Assemble” – as opposed to paint – as the artist is best known for his collage/assemblage techniques.  If you look closely, the artwork includes references to the many organizations the Economic Council established or helped to establish, such as the Business Development Board, the Education Foundation, the Dwyer Awards, and TaxWatch, to name a few.

The artwork is now housed at the current Chair’s office at Gunster.
