Kinetic Parade
Winners of Ebb & Flow


Arts Council Santa Cruz County partnered with several businesses (including Radius Gallery) to execute Ebb & Flow.  The initiative included a celebration with live music and performances, River Tours, a Kinetic Parade, 10 temporary public art pieces, and 1 permanent sculpture now located at the Tannery Arts Center.
