“Gate Wave", the public art project selected for the new transit center being built in North Redondo this year.
A large wave, albeit one made of aluminum and wood, is about to break on Kingsdale Avenue.
The Redondo Beach City Council on Tuesday night served as a de facto art jury and selected “Gate Wave,” a large public artwork that will be built later this year alongside the new transit center adjacent to the Galleria Mall in North Redondo Beach. “Gate Wave,” designed by artists Volkan Alkanoglu and Marc Fornes, was chosen among three finalists winnowed down from 10 submissions by the city’s Public Art Commission.
