Did you know?
This is an international project! St. Augustine and her sister city - Aviles, Spain - are the first Compassionate Sister Cities in the world! Compassionate St. Augustine developed Obelisk Art 450, a privately funded project, to foster a legacy of compassion as a tribute the 450th anniversary of our nation's oldest city in 2015. To celebrate and pay tribute to the two cities' remarkable shared history, Aviles’ mayor and city council have initiated a temporary obelisk art exhibit in conjunction with ours. Together, the two public art projects will create a unique international bridge spanning 450 years and inspire the values of democracy, freedom, human rights, and compassion for future generations.
