South Florida unveiled Rocket as one of the largest outdoor sculptures ever chosen for a public art initiative in Palm Beach County. Rocket is surrounded by historic buildings designed by Marcel Breuer in the 1960s, and blends the style from the buildings and brings a modern take to the location.

After taking 2 years to construct Rocket, the completed project nods to Sci Fi retro futurism and encourages visitors to walk around and underneath it. Check out Rocket in Boca Raton, FL.
