Sea Spires is an iconic transit marker for the City of Long Beach designed to encourage pedestrians, drivers, and transit riders alike to reflect upon the power of art to enhance urban communities. With an elegant profile measuring sixteen feet tall, Sea Spires is totemic and guardian-like yet composed of distinctive curves intentionally reminiscent of sea life. Located across from the Long Beach Harbor at the corner of East 2nd Street and East Marina Drive, the sculpture inspires a sense of movement along the East 2nd Street corridor and activates the transit stop’s existing bus shelter. By day, the sculpture’s stainless steel surfaces play with reflection and refraction of natural light. By night, the elements glow in harmonious uniformity.
