Pearson is a native Miamian who went to St. Theresa School. He founded his public relations firm, David Pearson Associates, in 1966 after serving in both JFK and LBJ Administrations. He is also an accomplished author.
In 2017, Hurricane Irma blew through Coral Gables and wrecked the two “flower”’ sculptures in the circles at Segovia and Biltmore Way.
If they were bizarre to begin with, Irma twisted them into Daliesque nightmares of poles, pods and petals. We benighted residents who have to look at these twin disasters every day implore the new City Commission to haul them off to the junk heap.
Give us a glorious native poinciana to gaze at instead.
