Compassionate St. Augustine’s OBELISK ART 450 Tour of Compassion is an International Public Art Exhibition Interpreting Freedom, Democracy, Human Rights and Compassion in the Nation’s Oldest City.

25 renowned artists who exhibit regionally, nationally and internationally were selected to create an artwork on the blank canvas of an 8.5-foot tall obelisk replica of the Monumento a la Constitucion on St. Augustine’s Plaza de la Constitucion.  

First Coast.TV went to visit all 25 Obelisks at their present location, as they are being exhibited through out the city from Oct. 2nd/2014 thru Jan. 31st/2016. In part 1 we visited 12 Obelisk, and hope to visit the other 13 in part 2.

    I had the privilege of seeing all of the obelisks together in the Crisp-Elert Museum! Now I’m glad to see them installed all around St. Augustine.

    Thanks for the tour, Jorge! I saw them en masse at Crisp-Ellert but seeing them, as you show them, nestled into our cityscape gives them life and reveals so much more of their character!
