REDWOOD CITY, CALIF.—
Street artist Marlon Yanes is known across the Bay Area for his 3D works, which you can now see along the Port of Redwood City’s waterfront.
The Port will host a ribbon cutting, Wednesday, November 20, to celebrate the new paintings, which include a 3-D mural depicting the inside of a sailboat cabin, utility box artwork honoring the Port’s history and a series of nautical-themed light posts.
“These fresh bursts of colorful public art are one of the many ways we’re working to invite more of the community to enjoy our waterfront,” explained Kristine Zortman, executive director of the Port of Redwood City. “With so many recreational opportunities here along the waterfront, we hope to create a welcoming place where people want to frequent. We invite everyone to come see the new public art here in person, and hope they stay awhile to enjoy our other amenities.”
The November 20 ribbon cutting will be at 8:00 a.m. at Spinnaker Sailing, 451 Seaport Court, Redwood City, CA 94063 and feature the artist, speakers from the Port of Redwood City and light refreshments.
