New Art for Redwood City Waterfront

The Port of Redwood City’s waterfront will soon feature the work of Bay Area street artist Marlon Yanes.

On Nov. 20, the port will unveil Yanes’ art during a ribbon cutting ceremony. The paintings feature 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,” said Port Executive Director Kristine Zortman. “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 ceremony will take place at 8 a.m. at Spinnaker Sailing, 451 Seaport Court, Redwood City, CA 94063.
