Parade of Floats
Artist: Andrew Leister (2005)
Parade of Floats is a procession of 16 sculptural "floats" along 5th Street between St. John and San Fernando Streets. These sculptures recall parades that are an expression of a community coming together in celebration. Each of these 16 floats are titled with themes that convey a vision of San Jose's historic and contemporary identity, as well as community priorities and values:
- Arts & Creativity
- Gold Rush
- High Technology
- Overcoming Adversity
The pre-cast concrete bases for the floats are shaped as cars or chariots. The sculptures are ceramic tile over concrete and vary in shape and size. Seven of the themes have been developed in the form of columns, approximately 30 feet tall.
