Seagrass 海草 Artist Barbara Grygutis Design Company Barbara Grygutis Sculpture LLC ©Barbara Grygutis, 2010 client City of Long Beach, California. Fabricator CAID Industries, Tucson, Arizona, USA material Fabricated Aluminum, Light dimension 9.15m H x 3.05m W x 1.83m D Location Ocean Boulevard, Long Beach, California, USA Photographer Thomas McConville Drawings courtesy of Barbara Grygutis Sculpture LLC

The sculptural composition is designed as a single repetitive motif inspired by the visual rhythm of sea grasses underwater as they ebb and flow in the current. This iconic, 9.15m H sculptural composition with integral lighting brings to light the beauty of ocean life and its larger significance to metropolitan Long Beach, California, which is known as the “aquatic capital of the United States.” This public art installation is a unique landmark on the Ocean Boulevard corridor, a beautiful gateway which calls to Long Beach’s historical ties and proximity to the ocean. The undulating curves of “Seagrass” stretch towards the sky as though rippling and swaying in a larger-than-life seabed.

涨潮时,海草顺着水流来到岸边,落潮时,又随水流漂回,来来回回,受此启发,这件《海草》组 合雕塑诞生了。这座 9.15 米高的标志性组合雕塑拥有完美的灯光效果,让人们仿佛置身于神奇的海底世界, 对加利福尼亚的长滩市而言,《海草》具有更为重要的意义,因为这座大都市被誉为“美国的海上首都”。 这座公共艺术装置是海洋大道上唯一的地标,就像一座美丽的大门,将人们迎进长滩与海洋关系的无限 遐想中。《海草》呈现出波浪般的曲线,向天际无限伸展,远远望去,就像在广阔无垠的海床上泛起的 点点涟漪与波纹。
