This sculpture is pretty spectacular.

The Vue de L’eau station is long gone. But interesting structures can still be found! Just back from the corner of Woodrow and West Cliff Drive, is a sculpture named “Astronomy and Tides.” This was a gift to the City from David Kimball Anderson, a local artist who lives near here. He created the piece in 2007 for the City because he felt it was time to give back to the community.

Mr Kimball designed the piece to be representative of our winter waves. The circular shapes cut into the wave forms represent the night sky. The geometric element is recognition of work done here in Santa Cruz to more accurately predict tides and swells. The sculpture sits on a table that is California Craftsman in style but made of steel.
