The new public artwork, called "Where Dreams Come True," depicts a boy and a girl standing back-to-back holding an internally illuminated rainbow above their heads.  

It was donated by Cleveland residents Iris and Mort November to celebrate the life of Mort's late daughter, Bebra Ann, who passed away in 1977 at the age of 24. To preserve her memory, a box containing personal items such as her baby shoes is built into the bottom of the sculpture.  

The piece, which weighs 5,500 pounds and is over 16 ft. tall, was created by Hector Vega.  

"I wanted to show that the kids are very thankful for everything the nurses, doctors and everyone has done, so by holding up the rainbow it is like holding the hospital in high regard," said Vega, the artist who donated his time and talent to the sculpture because of his sensitivity to the children at the hospital.
