OUR BIGGEST, BOLDEST BODY OF WORK

Only onboard Harmony of the Seas®

“The Wonder of Our World, The World We Live In,” presents over 3,000 pieces from artists spanning 60 countries. Led by curatorial director Mariangela Capuzzo at ICArt, the collection explores wonder from four perspectives— people, places, what we do and what inspires us —through an array of media. Many of the works were created specifically for Harmony of the Seas and designed to bring joy to all who sail.

Ivy

One of the most prominent works onboard was created by French artist Marc Fornes and consists of more than 10,000 hand-painted aluminum pieces. The vibrant yellow and pink colors make it a guest favorite.
