Nilda's Public Art in Local Park
“HOWARD STILLMAN BATES FOUNDATION DONATES STATUE TO COLLEE HAMMOCK”
A community newsletter published by the City of Ft.Lauderdale
Standing four feet tall on a platform, Li’l Blader- a life-size bronze statue of a young girl—seems to be posing for the camera as she twirls around on her roller blades. She’s innocent, sassy and has skated her way into the City of Fort Lauderdale’s Colee Hammock Park.
The Howard Stillman Bates Foundation, named after its founder, donated the 200-pound statue to the City of Fort Lauderdale. Bates, who purchased the statue from its creator Nilda Maria Comas, said his sole purpose for the statue was to “give it to an organization worthy of its beauty.”
“Nilda creates wonderful works of art and this one shows the fun-loving life of a beautiful child,” he said. “I wanted to donate it to the City, specifically to Colee Hammock Park, because of the children I’ve observed having a great time playing there.”
