Maritime Fun Fact: Historically, all cats – though, especially black cats – brought luck to a voyage.
Public art adds beauty, culture and history to our waterfront. Throughout October, we have shared the Port’s array of public art installations through social media. The original art installations were launched in 2019. Since then, they continue to decorate our walkways and waterfront, highlighting our maritime pride and the history of our Port. Our iconic Heron sculpture, located by the public fishing pier, celebrates the restored wetlands and wildlife habitat on Bair Island. This majestic piece was constructed out of recycled metal donated by our tenant, Sims Metal. Pieces like the Heron help activate our beloved waterfront. We encourage you to enjoy the public art installations year-round or next time you're at the Port!
