The transformation of a prominent, blighted, street corner in Venice, California into
an inviting neighborhood park with sculptural seating and drought tolerant grassy berms. 
A tribute to Venice's professional baseball history. Simulation:

mosaic spheres:  urban sculptural seating with neighborhood iconography
"Sea Kelp," "Historic Venice Colonnade Portraits" and "Triangle." "Camel" and "Sea Anemone" not pictured.

A contemporary play on our illustrious Venice history:  From 1913-14 Venice was home to the Venice Tigers minor league baseball team.  We had a "ballpark" one block East of this site, at the SW corner of Venice and Abbot Kinney Boulevards. The team came from, and returned to, the City of Vernon.  Some kind of shenanagans in Vernon brought the Tigers to Venice for the 2 seasons. These were the only communities in Los Angeles able to serve liquor during prohibition.
