“Tailwalking Suncatcher” by Stephen Fairfield
This glittering sailfish is a constant rainbow of colors as it tailwalks across the oceans surface. Its scales diffract the sunlight while its sail and fins glow a rich cobalt blue. Made of steel pipe, hardware cloth and plexiglass, the artwork also features a base with waves made from recycled automobile steel.
“Imagine” by Kent Kraber
This artwork captures the imagination in all of us. The artist depicts dragons as caretakers rather than fearsome or devious creatures.
“A Day in the Life” by Meilisa Lim
Standing before this seemingly restless squid brings the viewer closer to the inhabitants of the ocean. Its colors and swirls allow it to be seen as it would be in the water. Constructed of brightly colored fiberglass and resin, this imaginative creature stands ten feet tall.


  1. These are so fun! And they make a place so much prettier and accessible somehow.

  2. I love these “trees” on the bay. I work at Harbor Drive and Hawthorne and really enjoy going out to see the statues. The blue swordfish is one of my favorites!

  3. I enjoyed these so much! Your photos are really a joy to behold.

    The sky photo on your other blog, where I’m unable to comment for some reason, is equally gorgeous.

  6. Great series Walker. I especially like the sailfish one. And the huge ocean liner of course.

  8. Squid looks like it’s having a bad tentacle day. Neat series of art photos.
