In March 2018, the City’s Public Art Committee issued a Call to Artists. Out of the applications submitted, the glass and corten steel memorial, entitled Unbroken Spine, A Book of American Heroism, by Cherie Saleeby, was selected. The artwork is located at Founders Park next to Pompano Beach’s fire museum. The exposed steel in the artwork symbolizes the backbone of the first responders and their resolute courage. The steel also represents the spine of a bound book helping to keep the pages together. Etched onto the glass pages are the names of the first responders who lost their lives.
