"Unity Plaza" by Miami based artist Jefre Manuel is a place-making project where art and urban design transform the entrance to the City's Public Safety Headquarters into a place that stands for honor, respect, and enduring appreciation of the community and the public service men and women of the past, present, and future who "protect the grid" every day. 


"Unity Plaza" is a place that stand for honor, respect, and enduring appreciation for the courageous men and women that "protect the grid" of San Antonio every day.  Artist Jefre Manuel's vision was to bring awareness and pay respect to the public safety men and women.  The 60 foot-tall conical beacon lights up the sky at night inviting passerby's.  "Unity Plaza" is an urban placemaking project.
