Wellington is proud to announce the most recent installment of the Art In Public Places initiative throughout the community. Colbert C. Collins, a Wellington resident from 1977 to 2009, was a decorated Paratrooper and Ranger in the 101st Airborne Division, successful restaurateur, and a prolific sculptor. Living for more than 30 years in the Wellington area, Mr. Collins’ sculptures reflect an inner vision that life is “a discovery of the inherent design and relationship between all things.” His pieces mirror a fascination with movement and change and the importance of bonds between people. His wife, Shirley Colbert, was the Director of the Children’s Library Programs for all of Palm Beach County. Many of Mr.Collin’s works feature images of books and reading.
Four of his sculptures will be showcased in the following areas: the Wellington Community Center (12150 Forest Hill Blvd), Village Hall (12300 Forest Hill Blvd), and at the entrance to the Palm Beach Little Ranches community, where Mr. Collins resided.
