As part of efforts to enhance the waterfront experience through public art, the Board of Port Commissioners has approved artist concept proposals for three art projects to be installed in conjunction with the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina’s $200 million redevelopment project. The proposals were approved at the December 8, 2015, Board of Port Commissioners meeting and will fulfill the Port of San Diego’s “Tenant Percent for Art” requirement.
The first artwork, titled “Tide,” is an exterior sculpture comprised of a series of LED-illuminated waves created from powder-coated aluminum tubes and ceramic tile pavers. The tubes and pavers are arranged in a serpentine strand of sculptural waves that crest and fall. “Tide” will be installed on Marina Walk outside of the new Marriott Hall.
