O Wave sculpture by Ovation condos St Petersburg

O Wave sculpture by Ovation luxury condos in downtown St Pete

O Wave sculpture by Ovation luxury condos in downtown St Pete

Last Friday this new glass and steel sculpture was unveiled. It’s in front of the Ovation luxury condos on the sidewalk at the corner of Beach Drive and 2nd Avenue N in downtown St Petersburg.  JMC Communities commissioned this piece by Gordon Huether of Napa, California.
I love looking at this as I walk or drive by (and I go a block out of my way each evening to drive by it) to see the beautiful changing colors in the overlapping glass panels that resemble the scales of a fish. I’m not a fan of contemporary art but this piece is appealing.
The wave is reflecting the blues with some pinks and purples, but when you look at the reflection on the sidewalk you see reds and oranges.
I like to think of downtown St Petersburg as The QuARTer because of all the art downtown – from museums and galleries to sidewalk sculptures and chalk poetry.  It’s all about the quality of life, isn’t it?
Thanks, JMC, for another wonderful addition to downtown St Pete.
